Quote
A distinctly two-tone mouse deer that was feared lost to science has been captured on film foraging for food by camera traps set up in a Vietnamese forest.

The pictures of the rabbit-sized animal, also known as the silver-backed chevrotain, are the first to be taken in the wild and come nearly 30 years after the last confirmed sighting.


Quote
Despite the name, they are neither mice nor deer, but the world’s smallest ungulate, or hoofed animal.

I bet even a 270 could take down one of those.

Quote
Before the recent discovery, a total of five silver-backed chevrotains had been seen in only two confirmed instances: in 1910, when researchers acquired four specimens, and in 1990, when a joint Vietnamese-Russian expedition obtained a silver-backed chevrotain that had been killed by a hunter.

Probably good in a bowl of Pho'. Gueszing that's why they're hard to find.

I have seen many who were proud to get a mouse deer or mousey dear.

That’s cool that it’s not extinct. I would hope that things like this would humble science with how much they don’t know.

Wishful thinking!


if a man speaks, and there isn't a woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

I'm thinking a 177 pellet gun could take one.

Watched a hunting show about some guy hunting the Tiny 10 in Africa. Using a shotgun.

Not my cup of tea. I like big antlers and backstrap.

Typical Campfire ....

Awesome critter!

Got that right. Real dandy looking little fellows!

Glad they're making it! Amen brother.

What cartridge? Wouldn't take much!

Let's eat it!

In .05 caliber. Hell, Use a .458 case.... smile

Or one of those .7mm calibers I once read about in a Fake News article.

I know....but I’m humbled. Those of us that spend our lives outdoors and enjoy the wilderness for more than just a passing moment or those of us that spend any time on the ocean and it’s all consuming openness understand how much we don’t know or just how much we do know is wrong. How very small we are in the big picture.
