Giant Muntjac Megamuntiacus vuquangensis

The Giant Muntjac was discovered in 1994 in a remote part of northern Vietnam. As its name would suggest it is one of the largest of the muntjac species, its shoulder height being up to 70 cm, making it about twice the size of other known species of muntjac. The coat is a dark brown colour. Little is yet known about this animal, but it does appear to be under threat from hunters and loss of habitat.
