Southern Pudú Nexon Game

Southern Pudú is a type of Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.


Southern Pudú has brown hair which is parted in the middle, fading to tan at the bangs. It is also tied into two braids in the back. The parted section is darker at the middle than the rest of the hair. To represent her animal's horns, two curves of nearly-white hair are present at the middle of her head. She wears a brown dress which is lighter on the chest area - this tanned color also reappears at the ends of her sleeves and the frills present at the bottom of her dress. She has brown leggings and boots of a similar color to the tanned detail on her dress. She has brown eyes and pale skin. Like all other Friends, she has traits of the animal species she belongs to, specifically her tail and ears. She also uses a double-ended spear, with the primary spearhead being preceded by fur.

In Real Life

Pudús are the smallest deer in the world, although the Southern Pudú is slightly larger than the similar Northern Pudú. They stand only about one to one and a half feet tall at the shoulder and being about three feet long. They normally weigh around 20-25 pounds. Males of the species have short, non-forked antlers about three inches long between their ears that shed annually.

Pudús are most active shortly after dawn and shortly before sundown. They primarily eat a diet consisting of foliage like vines, shrubs, tree bark, fruit, and the like. Due to their small size pudús have difficulty accessing food that is out of their reach, but they can lean on their hind legs against trees or climb low-hanging branches to access food normally out of reach. Due to the large amounts of moisture in the food they typically eat, pudús can go long periods without drinking water.

Pudús have a territory of 40-60 acres on average, with territories being marked by dung piles on major trails and near sources of water. Pudús are solitary animals, generally only coming together in the mating season in the early spring. Pudús have a gestation period of about seven months, are weaned after about two months, and leave the care of their mother after about eight months to a year. Fawns are fully grown after about three months.

The species as a whole has an estimated range of about 12.5 million square miles in the mountainous forests of southern South America, with current estimates postulating that there are over 10,000 individuals in that range. Their primary predators include horned owls, Andean and Magellan foxes, and Cougars.


  • At the time of the launch of the 2015 game the Southern Pudú was listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, but was updated in 2016 to be "Nearly Threatened" as a result of more data being collected on the species.
