Low to the ground, a tiny creature sniffs the foliage, searching for its next meal. It carefully weaves across the ground, undeterred by the darkness of the Indian forest.

Unbeknownst to the animal, a trail camera sat nearby — recording the rare sight.

Indian mouse-deer are formally known as Indian spotted chevrotain, according to the University of Michigan’s Museum of Zoology. They look like miniature deer and have white spots across their backs. These small deer weigh about 6-and-a-half pounds and reach between eight to 15 inches in height, the university said.

Although not threatened, Indian mouse-deer are solitary and nocturnal animals — making them naturally elusive, the university said.

A single mouse-deer passed in front of a trail camera at the national park on May 19, park video shared on Facebook by East News shows. The creature sniffed the ground as it slowly walked away from the camera.
