Here is a bit of information on the Marsh Deer.

The Marsh Deer is the largest native species of deer found in South America. It is similar in size to the Red Deer. Its alternative name of the Swamp Deer reflects the types of habitat this deer lives in. The Marsh Deer has a shaggy coat, which is a distinctive red chestnut colour. The under parts and lower parts of the neck are paler in colour. The coat darkens during the winter months. The ears are large and prominent and stand out well against the coat being lined with white coloured fur. The lips, and the lower parts of the muzzle are black and also stand out well against the coat. Around the edge of the eyes is a slight ring of whitish fur. The lower legs are often a black or dark brown colour. There are no distinct rump markings. The tail is long and bushy and has a reddish brown colour.
