Mouse deer FOUND: What is a mouse deer? Species discovery after 30 years thought extinct

But in a huge breakthrough for the species, Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC) captured images of the animal in the wild, with details published in the Nature Ecology & Evolution journal on Monday.

An Nguyen, associate conservation scientist with GWC, said: “For those of us living in Vietnam and working in wildlife conservation, the question of whether the chevrotain was still out there and if so, where, has been nagging us for years.

“There was very little information available to point us in the right direction and we didn’t know what to expect.

“That we were able to find it with so few leads and in a relatively short period of time shows how a little bit of effort and willpower can go a long way in finding some of these special species lost to science.”
