Untitled[edit]

Conflict with another article[edit]

This article states that the Muntjac was introduced into England as a result of animals escaping from Woburn Safari park (paragraph 2 under Description). However, this statement is fairly comprehensively disputed under the article 'Reeves's Muntjac', section "Introduction into England". — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ryansuchocki (talkcontribs) 00:55, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

I believe it is worth noting that this article's information about the introduction into England is cited, while the section of the 'Reeves's Muntjac' articles titled "Introduction to England" contains no citations. Either more references are needed or the 'Reeves's Muntjac' article should be altered, as now it reads as nothing more than speculation. 187.153.200.213 (talk) 00:10, 11 March 2015 (UTC)

More info.[edit]

Give more info on the muntjac please —Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.15.232.140 (talk) 20:32, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

The Muntjac is not a monkey, it is a deer. The page needs significant rewriting and the comments made in the discussion not relating to the subject should be deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.22.0.164 (talk) 12:36, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

Canine Teeth[edit]

Note cross-linked from Chevrotain page due to shared or confused characteristics.

The recent news article about the Mouse-Deer's predilections described them, as this article does, as having noticeably enlarged canines. This is a characteristic that I noted when trying to evict what was identified to me as a Muntjac (common feral introduced animals in England) ; however this characteristic isn't noted in the Muntjac page. Which suggests that either the identification I was given was wrong and perhaps Mouse-Deer are also wild in Britain, or that there is a significant error in the Muntjac page. The BBC Wildlife page [dead link] [moved or extracted? See Springwatch Spotters Guide] informs us that "Its protruding canine teeth look a little like tusks. Also, note the rounded and arched back."

Could these also be called "dracula deer"? 05:28, 6 January 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.214.223.159 (talk)

Bark?[edit]

How about something on its bark, which may be heard even if the deer is not seen. Some way of telling the difference between this bark and that of a fox would be good. 78.149.114.89 (talk) 21:47, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Different Binomial name[edit]

As I know there are differences in Binomial name, Barking deer is Muntiacus vaginalis and Muntiacus reevesi is called Reeves's muntjac. -Nirmal Dulal (talk) 15:24, 18 October 2013 (UTC)
