The Burmese brow-antlered deer is a medium-sized deer. It has long, thin legs, a long body with a short tail, and a large head on a thin neck. Despite its rough appearance, the coat is smooth and thin. The antlers of the males, or stags, are the most impressive feature of this deer. They have many tines and reach 3-7 feet in length. Brow-antlered deer have numerous scent glands on their feet, legs, and faces that are used for communication. The male uses “”chemosignaling”” through urine and feces to let females know it’s ready for reproduction.
