The Eld's deer (Rucervus eldii), also known as the Thamin deer, is a species of deer found in Southeast Asia, including Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. It is a medium-sized deer, with a reddish-brown coat and distinctive antlers (in males).
Eld's deer are known for their elegance and are considered to be one of the most beautiful species of deer. They are herbivores and feed on a variety of vegetation, including leaves, shoots, and grasses.
These deer are social animals and are known to form herds. They are also known for their vocalizations, including barks, grunts, and whistles, which they use to communicate with other members of their species.
Eld's deer are considered to be a threatened species, with declining populations due to habitat loss, hunting, and competition with domestic livestock. Conservation efforts are underway to protect their habitats and preserve their populations, including measures to control hunting, promote sustainable forestry practices, and support research and monitoring programs.
