Indian Muntjac (Muntiacus muntjak)
The Indian muntjac (Muntiacus muntjak), also called the southern red muntjac and barking deer. This muntjac has soft, short, brownish or greyish hair, sometimes with creamy markings. It is among the smallest deer species. It is an omnivore and eats grass, fruit, shoots, seeds, bird eggs, and small animals, and occasionally scavenges on carrion. Its calls sound like barking, often when frightened by a predator, hence the common name “barking deer”.
