  Hog Deer

 

PREVIOUS DEER NEXT DEER Vietnam

Hog Deer in Saigon Zoo. Its name is descriptive of the hog-like manner in which it runs, i.e. with its head hung low (fig.), in order to be able to duck under obstacles, instead of leaping over them like most other deer.

 

Apart from a white undertail, their fur is overall brown, with some lighter shades of sand colour on the head. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
