HABITAT
Native to India, where it is known as the chital, the axis deer was introduced into Texas in about 1932 and now occurs in a number of counties in the central and southern part of the state.

U.S. Habitat: Axis deer feed on grass and sedges in fields near wooded or sheltered areas. They can be found in open areas during warm periods of the day, but are primarily active at dusk or dawn. Since the axis deer prefer warm weather they thrive in the state of Texas.
