VAMPIRE DEER? SABRE TOOTH DEER?
Deer with Fangs: Not your mother’s Bambi
 Tufted Deer (Elaphodus cephalophus)
A species of small Asian deer characterized by a prominent tuft of black hair on the forehead and, in males, fang-like canines.
It is restricted to the forested mountains of northeast Burma and south central China (also known as the Golden Triangle) which reach heights of 4500 m above sea level, This and its crepuscular habits make study difficult.
I recently completed silkscreening my “tree of life” print. It’s an edition of 20 printed on Stonehenge vanilla paper. You can read the sordid manufacturing details here. I based the information the tree is built on from the book :The tree of life: A phylogenetic classification, so if there’s any information that’s wrong (which I assume there will eventually be), blame the book. Because there’s only so much I can comfortably fit on a 22x30 inch piece of paper, I decided to focus on lifeforms people can see with the naked eye.

Goose barnacles are the most amazing things!
