The Spotted Deer is usually seen associating with Hanuman Langurs and is said to share a special bond due to the protection each offers the other. Spotted Deer form herds and a dominant male secures rights to the females in the herd. They are Herbivorous and will occasionally feed on low hanging branches but mostly graze on grasses. Habitat is in dry zone scrub jungles and can be easily seen in national parks which they are confined to due to heavy poaching.
