Chinese water deer

I don't know about the age of the animal, but the 'teddy bear' face with big rounded ears is chinese water deer.

Water deer

As with Gill, I'm not sure I can tell age from the photo. If you are going on the size, consider an adult is only the size of a large collie dog.

water deer

There are definitely water deer in the area, and i am nearly 100% sure it is but just wanted to double check. They have just bred with a total of 4 fawns!
