Hog Deer (typical) - Species Detail
Ciervo porcino (Sp), Schweinshirsch (G), Cerf cochon (F). Common name is because of its low, heavy build and its characteristic of running through grass with its head down like a pig.
DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height 24-29 inches (60-74 cm). Weight 80-100 pounds (36-45 kg). Females are smaller.
A small deer with a low, heavy build and comparatively short legs and face. The general coloration is brown or yellowish-brown with a dark dorsal stripe. The buttocks, underside of tail and inside of ears are white. The fawns are spotted. The tail is rather long and well-haired.
Typical hog deer antlers have three points to a side-the main beam plus two tines. A short brow tine emerges from the burr as a fork with the main beam, and a short inner top tine comes off the inside of the beam to form a weak terminal fork. Some hog deer antlers will exhibit additional tines; such tines are always non-typical.
DISTRIBUTION Private properties in Texas.
REMARKS Hog deer are native to southern Asia, from Pakistan to Burma.
