Also called wetland barasingha or northern barasingha.

DESCRIPTION This is the floodplain form of barasingha with large, splayed hoofs that have adapted to a swamp environment. Compared with the hard-ground subspecies, the antlers are narrower and lighter in color, the skull is smaller, the summer coat appears somewhat darker and the winter coat lighter. Longest recorded antlers were 40 inches (101.6 cm) (Rowland Ward, 1927).

BEHAVIOR In Nepal and Uttar Pradesh it lives in swampy land and is seldom out of water. The rut in northern India and Nepal peaks about November, although mating can occur from September to April. In eastern India it begins in late April and continues until about December, with the peak probably in August. The single fawn is born 8 to 8-1/2 months later. Females first give birth when about three years of age, and once a year thereafter.

DISTRIBUTION Isolated pockets in southwestern Nepal and Uttar Pradesh, India.
