Description
We have been issuing special stamps annually of rare and endangered animal and plant species in an effort to encourage the public to join in the drive to protect them.

Musk Deer (Moschus moschiferus - Natural Monument No.216)
The musk deer is similar to the Chinese water deer in physical apperance. They differ, however, in that the musk deer has a smaller body, shorter limbs, and greyish-brown hair. Musk deer inhabit rocky coniferous or mixed coniferous and deciduous forests at altitudes of over 1,000 meters.
