Siberian Roe Deer - Asia

Capreolus pygargus pygargus

Corzo Siberiano (Sp), Siberisches Rehwild (G), Chevreuil de Siberie (F).

DESCRIPTION & TAXONOMIC NOTES Our Siberian roe deer category includes the three races described below. The name pygargus Pallas, 1771, has priority.

The common Siberian roe deer (pygargus) ranges from the eastern foot of the Urals eastward in Siberia, northern Kazakhstan, and northern Mongolia to the Gulf of Tatary. It is considerably larger than the European roe. Body length of males 48-59 inches (123-151 cm), average 53 inches (134 cm); females 47-58 inches (119-147 cm), average 51 inches (129 cm). Shoulder height of males 33-39 inches (85-100 cm), average 35 inches (90 cm); females 32-38 inches (80-96 cm), average 34-1/2 inches (87.5 cm). Weight of males up to 130 pounds (59 kg); females up to 115 pounds (52 kg). Skull length 8-1/2 to 10 inches (215-253 cm). The winter coat is grayish-brown with the typical white rump patch, but is much thicker and rougher than in the European roe deer. Summer coat is a brighter and lighter red, and lacks the waviness on neck and shoulders. The skull is narrow and long. The antlers are also much larger, heavily pearled, widely separated at the base, and slant upward in the shape of a "V." The coronets never touch as they often do in the European roe. Typical antlers have three points to a side, as in European roe, but the rear tine is sometimes bifurcated, resulting in a non-typical fourth point. Some individuals grow other non-typical tines as well. Ranges from the eastern foot of the Ural Mountains eastward in Siberia, northern Kazakhstan and northern Mongolia to the Gulf of Tatary.

The Tian Shan roe deer (tianshanicus) is slightly smaller than the common Siberian roe, but similar in color and skull structure. Found in the Tian Shan mountains.

The North Caucasian roe deer (caucasicus) is a smaller race that is geographically isolated on the northern slopes of the Caucasus (which we consider part of Asia for record-keeping purposes). Its range is given by Heptner, et al. as from Novorossiisk and Sochi eastward to the Caspian seacoast, and from the mouth of the Terek River to Derbent. It contrasts sharply with the European roe from the southern slopes of the Caucasus. Heptner, et al. describe it as being intermediate in size between the European and common Siberian roe deer, with Siberian-type antlers not over 13 inches (33 mm) in length. Body length of males reaches a maximum of 59 inches (150 cm) and averages 51 inches (130 cm). Maximum weight 88 pounds (40 kg), average 66 pounds (30 kg), with the heavier individuals rare. Skull length 8-1/2 to 9-1/4 inches (216-235 mm), average 8-7/8 inches (225 mm), which is at the lower end of the range for Siberian roe, but larger than that of European roe.

BEHAVIOR Breeds during July and August, with births delayed until May and early June because of delayed implantation. Principal predators are wolf, leopard and tiger.

DISTRIBUTION Mainly from the eastern foot of the Ural Mountains eastward in Siberia, northern Kazakhstan, and northern Mongolia to the Gulf of Tatary, roughly between latitudes 57-46°N. Also in the Tian Shan range of southeastern Kazakhstan, eastern Kyrgyzstan, and western Xinjiang, China, and on the northern slopes of the Caucasus Mountains. Intergrades with the Chinese roe deer in the Amur-Ussuri region.

Outside Asia, Siberian roe deer are also found in European Russia on the western slopes of the Urals, roughly between 50-60°N latitudes and east of about 52°E longitude.

In addition, Siberian roe of unknown origin have been introduced on hunting reserves in various parts of European Russia, and perhaps in Asian parts of the former Soviet Union as well.
