Sambar deer in Asia, video


This 2 June 2020 video says about itself:

This week on Candid Animal Cam, we’re talking about the sambar deer, a species of deer found in the Indian subcontinent, South China, and Southeast Asia.

Did you know that male adult sambar deer and pregnant or lactating females have a hairless red spot located mid-way down their throats that sometimes oozes a white liquid? Biologists suggest the sore spot may be linked with glandular activity.

And shout out to our writer and biologist Romi Castagnino, who hosted, produced and shot this video!
