Deer with ‘Vampire Fangs’ Spotted for 1st Time in Decades

 

An endangered deer with vampirelike fangs was spotted for the first time in nearly 60 years, in a remote forest in northeastern Afghanistan. The fanged creature is known as the Kashmir musk deer, and it’s native to the Himalayas of northern India, Pakistan’s Kashmir region and northern Afghanistan. A team of researchers scoured Afghanistan’s Nuristan province during 2008 and 2009, and recorded five sightings of the animal. These musk deer are classified as an endangered species on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List.
