Facts about this animal

he Eld’s deer is a since quite a while ago legged, since quite a while ago bodied, medium-sized deer with a lyre-formed match of vast tusks, and huge, spreadable hooves. The head-body length is around 180 cm, the tallness is 105-115 cm. The horns grow up to a length of around 100 cm (along the bar). Guys weight around 70-100 kg, females around 40-70 kg. Females are littler and more delicately worked than guys.

The ears are medium measured, wide yet not pointed, and very much haired on the inward surface. The coat hair is smooth and thin with scarcely any underfur. The uneven length of hairs delivers a fairly shaggy appearance. The shade of the mid-year coat is fawnish red on the upper parts with some pale spots close to the center line of the back. The under parts are pale cocoa. There is some white on the jaw, around the eyes and edges of the ears. The Winter coat is consistently dim cocoa above and whitish underneath. Females are marginally paler at all seasons. The tusks were shed from an end of June to early September, and are free of velvet by December of early January.
