[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The unbelievably graceful spotted deer we came upon in the Ross Island, were quite accustomed to being stared at and, in fact, stared right back at us.

At least two forms of deer, the hog deer and the spotted deer, have been introduced from India after the 1920s. In the absence of large predators, they have become pests in some places. The traditional arch-conservative aboriginal Andamanese will not hunt and eat the newfangled animals despite their perfectly edible meat. Another recent introduction to the island is the elephant.
