The Indian muntjac also called southern red muntjac and barking deer is a deer species native to South and Southeast Asia. It is among the smallest deer species. It is an omnivore and eats grass, fruit, shoots, seeds, bird eggs, and small animals. Occasionally scavenges on carrion. Its calls sound like barking, often when frightened by a predator and hence the common name "barking deer". Males have canines, short antlers that usually branch just once near the base, and a large postorbital scent gland used to mark territories.
