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.
