Just for fun!
Muntjac deer, for those going 'what the heck is that deer with fangs' are really cool little deer. Also known as Barking Deer, these guys are tiny, only about three feet tall. The bucks only grow small antlers as they tend to spar not with antlers but with their tusks. BRUTAL. They are also omnivores... yes, these deer do eat some meat! They use their fang/tusks to bite, but typically hunt small animals via strong blows from their legs.
Muntjac are the oldest known deer, appearing 15-35 million years ago.
