Muntjacs, also known as 'barking deer', are the oldest known deer and the least studied. They are thought to have begun appearing 15-35 million years ago. The present-day species are native to South Asia, and were introduced into England in the early 20th century. Males tend to use their tusks (downward-pointing canine teeth) for territorial fighting. The Indian muntjac has the lowest recorded amount of chromosomes of any mammal, whose males have only seven chromosomes, and its females only six.
