Spotted Deer

Axis axis


They grow to a height of approximately 90 cm at the shoulders and can weigh up to 85 kgs. Their life expectancy ranges from 20 - 30 years. Despite being one of the favourite prey species of predators such as tigers and leopards and only giving birth to a single fawn at a time, their population is quite abundant.


These deer can be seen, unlike many of their cousins, in dense jungle as well as open grasslands. The main factor behind their location is the presence of water
