The Pampas Deer was completed on December 28th, 2015. This drawing marks the very first time when I accidentally drew the completely wrong species. Not that it matters a great deal - it's just another animal I will add to the image library. It will likely be part of a collage of animals native to the Pampas area of South America. The drawing is based on a photo by Tony (tickspics) and was used with permission.
The Pampas Deer live in the grasslands of South America at low elevations. Their habitat includes water and hills, often with winter drought, and grass that is high enough to cover a standing deer. Many of them live on the Pantanal wetlands, where there are ongoing conservation efforts, and other areas of annual flooding cycles. Human activity has changed much of the original landscape. They are known to live up to 12 years in the wild, longer if captive, but are threatened due to over-hunting and habitat loss. There are approximately 80,000 Pampas deer total, with the majority of them living in Brazil.
