The Southern Red Muntjac. Those antlers are crazy! Found in most parts of Asia, they are unlike most deer. They are, in fact, OMNIVOROUS, periodically eating eggs & even hunting & killing small warm-blooded animals! They are also a TUSKED deer with 1'' long fangs & have striking scent glands around their eyes. Additionally, they are not social animals & do not live in herds--they are solitary & extremely territorial. They also have no set breeding season & can conceive throughout the year.

Pretty extreme example of deformed antlers on a buck (Hummel deer!), probably because it was pen-reared for the trait.  Either way, fantastic reference.

Muntjac deer. Woodlands are their preferred habitat, but they are increasingly found in gardens and even walking down streets. Native to south-east China and Taiwan, muntjac deer were introduced to parks in the UK in the early 20th century and escapees have since established wild populations.

saw this at the fair, it is about the size of a small dog, like a jack russell

5. Silver Fox – Like the Marble Fox they are part of the Red Fox species. And sadly again their fur is what is valued most by a certain minority. Read more at http://emgn.com/entertainment/7-of-the-most-beautiful-fox-breeds-youve-ever-seen/5/#rwf5XQFD42lTuJSw.99

The silver fox is actually the same species as the red fox – they simply have different pigmentation variations. The silver fox was, at on time, one of the most valuable fur foxes that could be found. They are still bred and farmed for their fur.

Beautiful !!!

When a creature knows so much love, that is all they know to give & share with other creatures.may all creatures know nothing but love.

Muntjac deer don't have a fixed breeding season, unlike many other deer. Instead, they reproduce continually throughout the year. This small and exotic looking deer can be surprisingly hard to spot, although a loud barking call could indicate one is nearby. Woodlands are their preferred habitat, but they are increasingly found in gardens and even walking down streets.
