Status: Least Concern
Isn’t this the cutest family you’ve ever seen? Muntjac deer grow to be no larger than a big dog (37 inches tall and weighing in at 22-40 pounds), which makes me want them to be part of MY family! Another feature that makes them resemble canines is that they bark. Yes, in fact another name for Muntjac deer are Barking deer!
Though instead of feeding these guys kibble, Muntjac deer prefer to dine on herbs, blossoms, grasses, nuts, and was also reported to eat trees. I know I definitely have a lot of weeds in my backyard they could feast on.
