About Sambar Deer:
Sambar (Rusa unicolor) are large deers native to the Indian subcontinent, South China, and Southeast Asia. Since 2008 they have been listed as vulnerable on the IUCN Red List. Populations have declined substantially due to overhunting and exploitation of their natural habitat. Sambar are the largest of the Indian deer and can be found primarily in damp woodland and marshland, although they are also seen in dry deciduous forests as long as there is enough water. The smell and hearing of sambar is highly developed, however they have poor eyesight so sometimes struggle to see predators if they are downwind. When they perceive danger they give a distinctive repetitive honking alarm call.
