“吸血鬼鹿”长有尖尖的獠牙用来吸血

流言研究人员在阿富汗发现一种长有长长獠牙的神秘的鹿,这种在那里十分罕见的动物已销声匿迹有60年了。看起来便如吸血鬼一般(见下图)

真相这种鹿叫克什米尔麝,属濒危物种。长长的尖牙当然不是用来吸血的——在交配季,雄鹿用尖牙吸引异性,还用它和其他雄鹿相互厮打,击退竞争者。

论证

这种鹿叫克什米尔麝。是麝科的一种濒危(EN)物种。这个种原来被认为是喜马拉雅麝的一个亚种,到了1995年才有人提出来应该单独成种,这人说服了大家,后来就独立成种了。

至于“多少年都没见货”啦,是典型的每日邮报式的一惊一乍。这种动物资料很少,确实很少见,但还不值得那么惊讶。至于为啥这种鹿这么少。很简单,贸易。

所谓麝香,就是麝科动物臭腺里提出来的香料。如何获得它们的香腺呢,杀杀杀。不光是克什米尔麝,各种麝都受麝香贸易的影响。

好了,说了这么久,该说说它们的獠牙了。不像牛或者羊,我们口语里说的“鹿”,其实是一个并系群。包括同属鹿上科的麝科和鹿科,以及鼷鹿上科的鼷鹿科,有时候甚至还囊括了长颈鹿。而在鹿上科这个群体内,有个比较好玩的属性:较为原始的类群有獠牙。例如,麝、麂、獐。这三类鹿,能够用獠牙来打斗、自卫。

不过,这种牙显然不是用来吸血的。

    I must show some appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this circumstance. As a result of looking through the world-wide-web and coming across tricks which are not beneficial, I thought my life was gone. Being alive without the strategies to the issues you've solved by way of this article is a critical case, and ones that might have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across your website. Your good skills and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was excellent. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a thing like this. I can also at this moment relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for your specialized and effective help. I will not be reluctant to endorse the website to anybody who needs to have recommendations about this situation.

    想起了剑齿虎,这个是不是可以叫“剑齿鹿”?
