Axis Deer

Posted by B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 12 August 2017 in Animal & Insect.

Native to India, where it is known as the "chital," the axis deer was introduced into Texas about 1932. In 1988, free-ranging herds were established in 27 counties of central and southern Texas. At this time, it also occurs as a confined animal on ranches in 67 other counties. Axis deer are the most abundant exotic ungulate in Texas.
