The first images in 30 years of a mouse-deer in the wild have been published.

It's unclear how many of them in the world exist. In fact scientists had assumed the species, known as the Silver-backed Chevrotain, was extinct.

The species, which has big fangs, tall legs and a round body, was photographed in Vietnam more than 2000 times during a 10-month period, according to the Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC).

'Mickey Mouse' and other fake scientists revealed as signatories to massive climate petition

  'Mickey Mouse' and other fake scientists revealed as signatories to massive climate petition Daily Telegraph Opinion Editor James Morrow says the petition calling for the declaration of a climate emergency is signed by ‘climate cultists’ trying to enforce ‘their own socialist ideals’. Mr Morrow’s comments come after it was revealed that the 11,000 signatures touted in the media as proof there is a climate emergency may have been hijacked by a few fake signatories - like Mickey Mouse from the Mickey Mouse School of the Blind and Zoology professor Araminta Aardvark from the University of Neasden.

Lost to the outside world for a generation—and feared extinct—a small deer -like species with tiny fangs has been photographed tiptoeing through a dry lowland forest in southern Vietnam . "They walk on the tips of their hooves and very cautiously tiptoe around on those skinny legs," Tilker says.

The silver-backed chevrotain, also called the Vietnamese mouse deer , was last recorded more than 25 years ago when a team of Vietnamese and Russian researchers They are shy and solitary, appear to walk on the tips of their hooves and have two tiny fangs . They typically weigh less than 10 pounds.

Photos of the rare species were released on Monday. A team is now working to monitor the species and determine its population.

"This might represent the last population or one of a handful of populations, in which case we need to take action immediately to put conservation measures in place to ensure its survival," said Dr Andrew Tilker of the GWC.

"Vietnam may be one of the toughest places to work on mammal conservation, so it's nice to have a hopeful story from Vietnam and to be part of something positive that can help ensure that this species is never lost again, including as the result of extinction," Dr Tilker said.
