The two-toned Mouse-deer species which is otherwise known as the silver-backed chevrotain, was found alive at the Vietnamese forest after 30 years. It was filmed by the camera traps set in the forests of Vietnam. The deer-like animal has been scientifically sighted only once since 1907.
Two-toned mouse-deer species
Despite the name, the animal is neither mice nor deer. The animal is of the size little larger than a rabbit. The chevrotain’s neck, body and front legs are silver-grey and hind legs are white. The Mouse-deer are often devoured by leopards, wild dogs and pythons. Scientists fear that traps laid by hunters have pushed the species to the brink of extinction.
Chevrotain still exists
