Caught this Muntjac playing in the snow, i then persued it through the thorns and got very snowy!!
Muntjac deer don't have a fixed breeding season, unlike many other deer. Instead, they reproduce continually throughout the year. This small and exotic looking deer can be surprisingly hard to spot, although a loud barking call could indicate one is nearby. Woodlands are their preferred habitat, but they are increasingly found in gardens and even walking down streets. Native to south-east China and Taiwan, muntac deer were introduced to parks in the UK in the early 20th century and escapees have since established wild populations.
