Reeves Muntjac Deer


Other name(s):
 Reeves Muntjac; Barking Deer

Scientific name: Muntiacus reevesi

Country / Place of origin: China and Taiwan

History: The Reeves' Muntjac is a muntjac species which
is native to southeastern China (Gansu to Yunnan) and in Taiwan. They have also been introduced in the Netherlands, England and Ireland. It takes its name from John Reeves, who was appointed Assistant Inspector of Tea for the British East India Company in 1812.

The Reeves' Muntjac is also called the barking deer, known for its distinctive bark, though this name is also used for the other species of muntjacs. Along with the slightly smaller Leaf Muntjac Deer, Reeves Muntjac Deer are currently being bred as pets in the United States.
