Chilean Huemul (Hippocamelus bisulcus)
This tough little deer is also called the south Andean deer or the guemal instead of huemul. There are only somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 of them left in the world, but this is actually an improvement over their numbers a decade or two ago. This huemul is one of Chile’s national symbols. The south Andean variety, like this fellow, lives only in Argentina and Chile. It’s exceptionally hardy, thriving in high altitudes and winter temperatures that can drop as low as -50ºC. That’s -58ºF!
