Not another Muntjac

Muntjac are really are common around here, leading me to jump to the wrong conclusion.

OK thanks -

They are recorded here, apparently - I'm so used to almost tripping over Muntjacs. I can see the difference now.

Water deer

Both can stand with that raised rump, however, look at the face; the muntjac has a dark V running from each ear down the muzzle, almost joining at the nose; whilst water deer have a black nose with a white line above it and lack the V.
