Toothed Deer

Has anyone ever told you about the vampire deer? This deer has horns like the rest of the deer, but it has fangs that are peaceful, but the males use their fangs to fight the males of the other factions during the mating season.
Called deer or marsh deer is a small deer from Asia. It is not classified, unlike many of its apparent characteristics, among the musk deer musk.
this species is a beagle-sized herbivore that’s been known to swim for miles on end in search of food and shelter in the wetlands it calls home. During the 1800s, they were introduced to England and subsequently began spreading through the British countryside as well.

In 1948, a Danish team crossed the species in Afghanistan. It took more than 60 years for other explorers to report their encounter with the animal.
According to scientists, the toothed Deer is a discreet, solitary animal, which remains mostly hidden in the forest. This is why its distribution is not well known in Afghanistan, especially since armed conflicts make exploration difficult. The mountainous province of Nuristan, located in north-eastern Afghanistan, where the authors conducted their survey, includes a significant amount of forest and its land is inaccessible. The animal lives in regions at about 3,000 m altitude.

ohmigosh, I had no idea there was a fanged deer. Thanks for this series about endangered animals. I read more about them on the smithsonian and wikipedia sites.

It's sad that these deer have been hunted to add "musk" to perfumes and colognes. If anyone uses a scent that includes musk, it might be a good idea to research that cologne brand to see if it comes from these beautiful wild animals!
