Muntjac skull (deer with prominent canines)

Muntjac's skull (deer with prominent canines): Muntiacus reevesi

The Muntjac of Reeves or Muntjac of Formosa (sometimes barking deer, or abusively, deer Muntjac) is a small cervid living in humid forests in Southeast Asia.

Introduced in the United Kingdom in the nineteenth century and which has adapted very well to the temperate forest and the bushy Barrens to Scotland. In England it does not have a predator, therefore hunters are allowed to shoot it in order to regulate the manning. 

It is best known for his more developed upper canines that allow him to defend his territory and to gain access to the favors of females during the breeding season.

Variable size between 23 and 26cm.

All skulls are different.
