Description

The Formosan Reeves' Muntjac (Muntiacus reevesi ), or just Reeves' Muntjac, is a muntjac species found in Taiwan, in Fujian, and Zhejiang, China, and in Boso Peninsula and Oshima Island, Japan. They have also been introduced in the Netherlands , England and more recently Ireland. It feeds on herbs, blossoms, succulent shoots, and 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.

Physical Description
The muntjac grows to 0.95 m (37 inches) in length, and weighs between 10 and 18 kg (22-40 pounds) when fully grown. 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. This small deer is also called the barking deer.
