A QUADRUPED but lately known; he is an inhabitant of India, and seems of a middle nature between the cow and the deer kind; in his body, horns, and tail he resembles the former, but the head, neck, and legs bear similarity to those of the latter. In the wild state these animals are said to be ferocious, but they may be domesticated, and in that condition give frequent tokens of familiarity, and even of gratitude to those under whose care they are placed. The female, or doe, is much smaller than the male, and is of a yellowish colour, by which she is easily distinguished from the buck, who is of a grey tint.
