Back in June this year, a photograph of a white hog deer spotted at Kaziranga National Park, captured by wildlife photographer Jayant Kumar Sharma went viral on the viral video. PTI had quoted Ramesh Gogoi, Divisional Forest Officer of the park as stating that the deer sometimes comes out of the park. It likes to wander with other brown deer to feed on grass. The white color of the deer is due to genetic matter, caused due to mutation of the gene. Well, and it is not a different species of the deer family, the DFO was quoted as telling PTI.
As per the reports, there are around 40,000 hog deers in Kaziranga and one or two such kinds of uncommon white hog deer can be found too. Also to make a note of, Kaziranga National Park is home to more than 2,200 Indian one-horned rhinoceros, an endangered species for which it is very famous. The park was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO back in 1985. As the tiger population in the park started growing, it was also declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006.
