Rusa (Javan) deer

Rusa deer droppings 500x500

Rusa deer droppings can be separate or clumped.

Rusa deer droppings usually occur as groups of scattered pellets, although they sometimes adhere to each other forming a larger dropping. Fresh droppings have a moist appearance and are either black or dark brown, but over time they dry out and fade to a dull light brown colour. From a distance they look like small, 10mm to 20mm diameter balls, but on closer examination they are found to be elongated and more pointed at one end.
