Have you ever been in a forest and seen a small animal with a head and body like a mouse but with legs and a tail like a deer? You are lucky if you have! These animals are quick and smart. Before you can see them clearly, they disappear. They are known as "mouse-deer" or "chevrotains" the "elves"of the forest! In China, we are a Class I-protected animal, meaning because we are endangered, the law safeguards our species.
