Chital (axis) deer

Chital are a tropical or subtropical species with a strong habitat preference for woodland, forests, and clearings near waterways. The presence of permanent water is essential to chital and has a major influence on the extent of their range.

In Queensland, the established chital range is in the area north of Charters Towers, where they were released in the late 19th century.

Chital deer are a non-declared animal.
