Eld's deer Facts & Photos

These amazing animals originate from Burma, Laos, and portions of Thailand. Currently listed as endangered species yet thriving at North American game ranches. A situation where trophy hunters are paying the fees to encourage ranchers to raise these animals. Unlike zoos, these deer retain their wildness generation after generation.

Lt. Percy Eld of Great Britain discovered these animals in the 1800's. Of course locals had hunted them for centuries. They're also named the brow-antlered deer. The main beam is a continuous antler from the brow to the far end.

I've not seen or photographed these animals. These photos were located on the net. By my sole point is to share information about the many deer species created by our Lord which inhabit our planet.
