Spotted Deer | Axis axis

The Middle East and Sri Lanka are the home of the Spotted deer, also known as the Chital. It inhabits plains and flat hills with trees and bushes. Their enemies are the tiger, leopard and Asian wild dog. Males and females live in herds all year round. They grow and shed antlers on their own schedule. There is no specific season for this occurrence, as with all tropical deer.
