When I was in Miyajima… The deer in the first picture followed me around hoping to eat the squid I’d just bought.
It was similar in appearance to the extant barasingha, with its coat being dark brown above and lighter below. It had impressive and beautiful antlers, that grew to have up to 33 points. Because of agricultural expansion and the decimation of most grassland in Thailand, combined with overhunting, the population of Schomburgk’s deer declined rapidly from the late 1800s to early 1900s. The last known member of this species was killed in 1938.
Deer taxidermy form.
Assorted cervids, plus the odd bovid, carnivoran and primate.
