Axis deer, also known as Chital deer, are a species of deer native to the Indian subcontinent. They are characterized by their reddish-brown coats with white spots, which provide camouflage in their natural habitats of grasslands and forests. Male axis deer have three-tined antlers, while females are antlerless.
Axis deer are social animals and live in herds. They are herbivores and feed on grasses, leaves, and bark. They are known for their adaptability and can survive in a variety of habitats, including savannas, grasslands, and forests.
Axis deer have been introduced to several other countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, for hunting and as ornamental species. They are considered an invasive species in some areas, where they can cause damage to native habitats and compete with native wildlife for food and resources.
