The red brocket or Peruvian Red Deer (Mazama americana) is a species of brocket deer from South America and from Costa Rica and Panama in Central America. Its body is mostly chestnut in color, with a lighter brown head and neck. The inner thighs and the underside of the tail are white. The male has small antlers.
The red brocket browses on vegetation, preferring fruit when it is available. It is generally solitary and stays in dense jungles. When alarmed, the animal raises its tail to flash the white, and stomps its hoof.
