Tufted Deer

Group of illustrated side elevation drawings of the Tufted Deer

The Tufted Deer (Elaphodus cephalophus) is a small species of deer distinguished by a conspicuous black hair tuft on its forehead. It is a similar relative of the Muntjac, except the Tufted Deer has a longer neck and legs, which give it a much leaner look. The coat is also rugged with short, straight fur, nearly black in the winter and white in the summer.

The lips, the tips of the ears, and the underside of the tails are white. The Tufted Deer roams far north in a wide region of central China in north-eastern Myanmar. Suffering from over-hunting and habitat destruction, this deer is considered near threatened.

Tufted Deer have standing shoulder heights between 1’7”-2’4” (48-71 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 3’7”-5’4” (109-163 cm), and overall weights of 35-110 lb (16-50 kg). The lifespan of a wild Tufted Deer is roughly 10-15 years.

Deer are cloven hooved ungulates which range in size from 1.25’-6.5’ (.4-1.9 m) with all species, except for one, having antlers. Deer exist on every continent besides Australia and Antarctica and live and forage for grasses and shrubs in temperate, alpine, wetlands, and grassland environments.
