Hyderabad Zoo is playing a pivotal role in saving one species – the mouse deer.
Sandeep Desai of Goa thought the wild intruder in his bathroom was a stray hare. But he was in for a surprise when the creature actually turned out to be an animal locally called a pisoi or what is more commonly known as the mouse deer!
Last February wildlife enthusiasts were greeted by one great news when the rare mouse deer was found grazing in the Nagzira wildlife sanctuary in Nagpur. Although the species has a wide range in India from the Western Ghats till Orissa, but they are difficult to spot because of their nocturnal nature.
