[2] Tufted Deer (Elaphodus cephalophus)
A species of small Asian deer characterized by a prominent tuft of black hair on the forehead and, in males, fang-like canines.

It is restricted to the forested mountains of northeast Burma and south central China (also known as the Golden Triangle) which reach heights of 4500 m above sea level, This and its crepuscular habits make study difficult.

Hi there! Would you happen to know what Ceeps setlist is? I've been trying to find it online but no one seems to have put it up yet. I mean i don't know why I would think you'd have it too but hey, doesn't hurt to ask! Thank you!!

I’m sorry I don’t know it. It’s funny because I was also searching for it a couple of minutes ago. :(
