Common Name : Chital Deer, Spotted deer, Axis Deer

Identification : The Chital’s Coat is rusty with prominent white spots all over. The spots remain all throughout their life. The Neck areas has a white patch and the underparts are also white in color. They are medium sized deer with average weight  25-80kg and are 30-40in in height. The females are smaller than males. The Males have antlers which are shed every year, while femaes do not. The antlers can grow upto 50-60 cms. The nostrils are large.
They remain in large herds of 20-30 deers with a few males. The legs are well developed to run faster and they can run upto 60-70 kmph to escape predators. These are very nervous animals and always on alert for approaching predators, they make loud call upon sensing the approaching predators to alert the other members of herd.

Eating Habits : The chital’s can adapt to various environments ranging from dense forests to open grasslands, however they always remain in close proximity to water sources. They mainly eat grass, tree branches, tree bark, plant leaves, fruits and grain. They have also been observed feeding on antlers (which have been shed by others) to complete their nutritional requirements.

Breeding Habits : Chitals are sexually mature by 1.5-2 years and can mate year round. However, the breeding is more common in summer season. Gestation period is around 7-8 months and normally 1-3 off springs are born.
