“For the record, I spotted the lone Lesser Mousedeer (Tragulus kanchil) as reported by Art Toh one hour earlier – at 4pm on 19th May 2019. This information is to give readers a better idea that these mousedeers are active during early morning and late afternoon, sometime even at night LINK.
“My first sighting of a pair at the same locality was on 3rd February 2019 at 12:50pm, which was a pleasant surprise to me, as I’ve always expected to bump into them (only) at dawn and dusk. (Just wondering if there were previous sightings at noon time?) At both sightings, they were not noticed to be feeding. Rather, the pair I met seemed to be having a playtime or courtship session (both were galloping towards me).
