Hog Deer

The smallest species of deer within Australia, the hog deer is closer to the size of a domestic sheep or pig, versus what you would typically expect from a deer.  Sporting colorations similar to that of the whitetail deer or mule deer, the hog deer also occasionally sports a row of spots during the warmer summer months.  In the mid-nineteen hundreds this species of deer reached record lows due to the use of poisons within the region to control other animals.  Today Australia supports a healthy population of hog deer.
