    So I’m friends with a person who own a backyard (about 20 acres) exotic zoo and they have 1 male and 2 female muntjac deer. They have fawns every 7 or 8 months so she told me if I wanted one I’m ould have the next one :). What do you think? Do you have any exotic deer like animals?
    Here is a picture of a muntjac deer baby, female adult, and then a male adult.

    Do you need a special permit to keep them??

    No, don’t need a special license or permit which I thought was weird at first. They get to be about 1 foot tall so there tiny for a deer. And yes it will have half an acre to roam with a house that is a 5x10. Some can be tamed others not

    Very cool. When I was stationed in Korea, they had some small deer on base about the size of a medium dog. I wonder if they’re related. They’d chase soldiers off the flight line, trying nip at them. Pretty funny. No one knows how they get in, as the whole base is walled.
