Muntjacs again

While I was pounding away on my keyboard this morning, my partner shouted that there was a muntjac fawn in the garden. I missed it, and so did his camera, but I hope it comes back. I also hope I get a chance to photograph the fox cub I saw last night. I tried, but it was late and dark and all I got was a smudge!

What is a muntjac?

It's a small Asian deer. They were kept in zoos and private estates, along with sika deer, and both have escaped and are breeding in the UK. My partner got some photos in the end and they're on my wildlife blog.

They're a funny looking creature. Don't look very big.

They're about as big as a large dog - an Alsatian or something like that. But they're round and fat and a bit pig-like, too.
