The Tufted Deer (Elaphodus cephalophus) is a close relative of the muntjac, living somewhat further north over a wide area of central China and northeastern India and Myanmar. It is restricted to forested mountain habitat up to 4500 meters above sea level, making study difficult, and, although suffering from habitat loss, is not considered endangered. It is small for a deer at 50-70 cm, though larger than muntjacs (except the giant muntjac, which also lives at high altitude). It has small antlers and like related species the males have short tusks. It is well camouflaged, the most prominent feature being a tuft of black hair over the forehead. The tufted deer has a white tail, like the white-tailed deer, and uses its tail to signal in a similar fashion.
