Musk Deer

Dracula says hi!

Class: Mammals
Order: Even-toed ungulates

Family: Musk deer
Habitat: Himalayas, Korea, China, Siberia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia; mountain forests

Musk deer originally come from Transylvania, are nocturnal, suck blood and hate silver and crosses ... just kidding. Their long, thin canines look a little like vampire teeth but musk deer aren’t interested in our blood. They use their teeth when two males fight.
