Chevrotain

Updated: Sep 17, 2019

Did you know that the Chevrotain is an animal that looks like a tiny deer with fangs?

Also known as mouse-deer, Chevrotains are the smallest hoofed mammals in the world. They are not mice, nor are they deer. They are very mysterious and shy which makes it difficult for scientists to study them. They are so small that are preyed upon by various animals. They use smells and noises to communicate. These beautiful creatures don’t have horns or antlers for protection and therefore live in solitude, they often graze alone and only come together to mate. They are nocturnal so it’s very rare to spot them.
