State Animal of Uttarakhand is: Alpine Musk Deer

 

The Alpine musk deer is native to the eastern Himalayas in Nepal, Bhutan and India to the highlands of central China. The Alpine musk deer recorded in the Himalayan foothills is now considered a separate species by itself and called as the Himalayan musk deer (aka White-bellied musk deer).

Himalayan musk deer are found in northern parts of India such as in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. They inhabit high alpine environments, with the lowest occurring at 2500 m above sea level. The species is endangered due to a high volume of illegal wildlife trade within its range.

They are very well adapted for high altitudes; they demonstrate such adaptations as well-developed dew claws, broad toes that provide increased stability on steep slopes, and a dense coat of coarse hairs with air-filled cells to insulate against the extreme temperature. While they lack antlers, a trait notable among all musk deer, they do possess a pair of enlarged and easily broken canines that grow continuously. The maximum length of these tusks is about 10 cm (4 in). These deer have a stocky body type; their hind legs are also significantly longer and more muscular than their shorter, thinner forelimbs. In place of running or leaping, this species tends to “bound.” Finally, fawns of this species have white spots to help with camouflage, but as they mature these spots disappear.

The white-bellied musk deer has a waxy substance called musk that the male secrets from a gland in the abdomen. The deer use this to mark territories and attract females, but the musk is also used in the manufacture of perfumes and medicines
