The Reeve’s Muntjac are found in southeastern China and Taiwan. The males have tusk-like upper canines and are one of the few deer to have canine teeth. The tongue, which is very long, can reach over the face to the eyes and is used in grooming. Muntjacs live alone or in pairs and are shy animals. They live in dense jungles usually near a stream. They graze on forest ground cover, small bushes, and tree leaves within reach. When alarmed they make a loud barking noise like a dog. The young are spotted at birth; however, the spots are lost after the fi rst or second year.
The Muntjac feeds on herbs, blossoms, succulent shoots, grasses and nuts
