Two species of mouse deer can be found in Singapore — the greater mousedeer and lesser mousedeer.
 Lesser mousedeer

Lesser mousedeer

The lesser mousedeer is the world's smallest hoofed animal. Listed as critically endangered in Singapore, this shy creature is restricted to our nature reserves.

Greater mousedeer

Greater mousedeer

Once thought to be extinct in Singapore, the greater mousedeer was resighted on Pulau Ubin after an absence of more than 80 years. Subsequent studies confirmed its surprising comeback.
