Reeves Muntjac is also known as barking deer or Mastreani deer, are small deer of the genus Muntiacus native to south and southeast Asia. Called barking deer because of their cry, muntjacs are solitary, nocturnal, and they usually live in areas of thick vegetation. Most species of muntjacs stand 15–25 inches high at the shoulder and weigh 33–77 pounds. Depending on the species, they range from grayish brown or reddish to dark brown. Males have tusk like upper canine teeth that project from the mouth and can be used to inflict severe injuries. The short antlers have one branch and are borne on long bases from which bony ridges extend onto the face (hence another common name, rib-faced deer); the female has small knobs in place of antlers.
It feeds on herbs, blossoms, succulent shoots, grasses and nuts. It takes its name from John Reeves, who was appointed Assistant Inspector of Tea for the British East India Company in 1812. It is dog-like in appearance but has striped markings on its face. The male has short antlers usually four inches or less, and uses them to push enemies off balance so he can wound them with his upper two inch canine teeth. Muntiacus reevesi is Reeves Muntjac Barking Deer scientific name.
