In Thai: เก้งหม้อ

The Fea's Muntjac or Tenasserim muntjac (Muntiacus feae) is a rare species of muntjac native to People's Republic of China, Lao People's Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. It is a similar size to the common muntjac (adult weight is 18 – 21 kg (40 - 46 lb)).

It is diurnal and solitary, inhabiting upland evergreen, mixed or shrub forest (at an altitude of 2500 m (8200')) with a diet of grasses, low-growing leaves, and tender shoots.

The young are usually born in dense vegetation, remaining hidden until able to travel with the mother.

It is named after zoologist Leonardo Fea. Its other name comes from the Tenasserim Hills, between Burma and Thailand..
