The Fallow Deer (Dama dama) is a ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. The male is a buck, the female is a doe, and the young a fawn. Bucks are 140-160 cm long and 60-85 kg in weight; does are 130-150 cm long and 30-50 kg in weight. Fawns are born in spring at about 30 cm and weigh around 4.5 kg. Only bucks have antlers. They are grazing animals; their preferred habitat is mixed woodland and open grassland.


The Chital (or cheetal) deer (Axis axis), also known as the spotted deer or Axis Deer is a deer which commonly inhabits wooded regions of Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, and most of India. It is the most common deer species in Indian forests. Its coat is reddish fawn, marked with white spots, and its underparts are white. Its horns, which it sheds annually, are usually three-pronged and curve in a lyre shape and may extend to 75 cm.

The Red Deer (Commonly called hart in the United Kingdom) is one of the largest deer species. The Red Deer inhabits most of Europe, the Caucasus Mountains region, Asia Minor and parts of western and central Asia. It also inhabits the Atlas Mountains region between Algeria and Tunisia in northwestern Africa, being the only species of deer to inhabit Africa. In many parts of the world the meat (venison) from Red Deer is widely used as a food source.

The Hog Deer (Axis porcinus) is small deer whose habitat ranges from Pakistan, through northern India, to mainland southeast Asia. The hog deer gets its name from the hog-like manner in which it runs through the forests with its head hung low so that it can duck under obstacles instead of leaping over them like most other deer. During flight, the tail is held erect, showing the white underside.

The Barbary Sheep (also called Aoudad and Arui) is a species of Caprinae (goat-antelope) found in rocky mountains in North Africa. Barbary Sheep stand 80 to 100 cm (30 to 40 inches) tall at the shoulder and weigh 40 to 140 kg (90 to 310 lb). They are a sandy-brown colour, darkening with age, with a slightly lighter underbelly and a darker line on the back. The horns curve outwards, backwards then inwards, and reach up to 50 cm (20 inches). The horns are smooth, but wrinkled at the base.

The Wild Boar is native across much of Central Europe, the Mediterranean Region (including North Africa's Atlas Mountains) and much of Asia as far south as Indonesia. Boars have the ability to leap 3 to 4 feet in the air. The tusks (the canine teeth) serve as weapons and grow continuously. The lower tusks of an adult male measure about 20 cm (from which seldom more than 10 cm protrude out of the mouth), in exceptional cases even 30 cm.

The Damara (sheep) was originally from Eastern Asia and Egypt and moved down to the present day Namibia and Angola. For many years the sheep were in an isolated region of Namibia and thus remained free of influence from other breeds. Damara sheep can survive in a harsh environment and under poor nutritional conditions. The Damara sheep has a diverse diet. It feeds on grass, bush and shrubs and can almost be classified as a browser.

The Mouflon is a species of wild sheep and as such is one of the Caprinae or “goat antelopes”. It is thought to be one of the two ancestors for all modern domestic sheep breeds. It is red-brown with a dark back-stripe, light colored saddle patch and underparts. The males are horned and the females are horned or polled. They originated in Southwest Asia, home to the species known as the “Asiatic mouflon” (Ovis orientalis)..

The Lechwe, or Southern Lechwe, (Kobus leche) is an antelope found in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, the Kafue Flats, the Bangweulu Swamps of Zambia, and the very southeast of Democratic Republic of the Congo. Lechwe stand 90 to 100 centimetres at the shoulder and weigh from 70 to 120 kilograms. They are golden brown with a white underbelly and black legs. Males are darker in colour. The long spiral structured horns are vaguely lyre-shaped, they are found only in males.

Blackbuck (Antilope cervicapra) is a species of antelope found mainly in India, but also in parts of Pakistan and Nepal. The horns of the Blackbuck are ringed with 1 to 4 turns, rarely more than 4 turns, and can be as long as 28 inches. A trophy Blackbuck is 18+ inches. In the male, the upper body is black (dark brown), and the belly and eye rings are white. The light-brown female is usually hornless. Blackbucks usually roam the plains in herds of 15 to 20 animals with one dominant male.

The Scimitar Oryx, or Scimitar-Horned Oryx, (Oryx dammah) is a species of oryx which formerly inhabited the whole of North Africa.The Scimitar Oryx is just over a metre at the shoulder and weighs around two hundred kilograms. Its coat is white with a red-brown chest and black markings on the forehead and down the length of the nose. The horns are long, thin and parallel and curve backwards (like a scimitar) and can reach a metre to a metre and a quarter on both sexes, male and female.

The wild Asian Water Buffalo weighs 800-1200 kg (1800-2600 lb). It is a massive, powerful animal, with the widest horn span of any bovid - more than 6.5' (2 m). The wild Asian buffalo eats grass and leafy aquatic vegetation. It is mainly a grazer, feeding in the morning and evenings and lying up in dense cover or submerging in wallows during midday.

Cameroon Dwarf Goat (also called Pygmy goats) are small, horned goats. They stand between 16 and 23 inches tall at the shoulder. Coat colour varies greatly and can be white, black or anything in between. Many pygmy goats have an agouti pattern. This is a mix of fur colour that gives a grizzled grey appearance.

bokA peculiar virtue in wildlife ethics is that the hunter ordinarily has no gallery to applaud or disapprove of his conduct. Whatever his acts, they are dictated by his own conscience, rather than by a mob of onlookers. It is difficult to exaggerate the importance of this fact.
