  1. Given the range and shape of the antlers, I would think that this is a Sambar Deer. Posted 5 years ago

The sambar is a large deer native to the Indian subcontinent, South China, and Southeast Asia that is listed as a vulnerable species on the IUCN Red List since 2008. Populations have declined substantially due to severe hunting, insurgency, and industrial exploitation of habitat.
