Skull Growth of the Korean Water Deer, Hydropotes inermis argyropus — Yungkun KIM et al. (pp. 867–878)

Craniofacial measurements have been taken from the Korean water deer (Hydropotes inermis argyropus), a unique small ungulate species distributed over the Korean peninsula. Although skull appendages like antlers do not exist in both sexes of this species, a pair of canine is well developed in the male. 34 cranial and 11 mandibular traits were analyzed and distinguished craniomandibular characteristics were found in this species.
