Central American red brocket
The Central American red brocket, Mazama temama, is a species of brocket deer ranging from southern Mexico, through Central America, to northwestern Colombia. It was formerly treated as a subspecies of the red brocket from South America, but its karyotype has 2n = 50, while the latter's was initially described as having 2n = 68-70. However, a more recent description gives the red brocket a variable karyotype with 2n varying from 48 to 54. It is sympatric with the Yucatan brown brocket over part of its range. The species is found in primary and secondary tropical forest, and is probably threatened by hunting and deforestation.
