The Hog Deer is named after its pig-like manner of flight (no pigs don't fly) with head down and tail with white tip held high. The winter coat of stags and hinds is plain brown and the spring/summer breeding coat is reddish brown with faint white spots and a darker central spine. Fawns of some subspecies have spots.
