Axis

Always vigilant

The beautiful axis deer with its distinct white spots lives in India cheek by jowl with the Bengal tiger. Constant vigilance is therefore absolutely necessary. Consequently, this shy deer – also known as the chital – stays close to bushes and thickets where it can quickly hide.
