Comments[edit]

I have a few comments/observations (unfortunately I can't fix them myself):

  • The map showing the range in the infox is missing China
  • The intro section states the antlers grow to 5.9" but the description section says they are only 1-2"
  • The section on reproduction states (without citation) "Indian muntjacs are distinguished ... in showing no evidence of a specific breeding season" but the next section on behavior mentions a rutting season several times. I would suggest removing the reference to "season" and leave it as simply the period when males begin looking for mates (or vice versa) if it happens any time of the year.
  • Similiarly, calling them both diurnal and nocturnal in the same sentence without explaining what causes them to act one way or the other seems unhelpful. Do they not show a preference or do animals closer to humans become nocturnal?
  • The section on genetics could use some expansion as that seems particularly notable for this species
