As compared to true deer, Siberian musk deer do not have any antlers, and these deer are best known for producing musk, a highly sought-after substance throughout the globe. Presently, the biggest danger to the musk deer population is poaching and hunting for musk, which is used in folklore medicines and fragrances.
Siberian musk deer is considered vulnerable as of now but is moving fast toward becoming endangered. Other than that, habitat loss by deforestation is also a big threat to its survival as they are only a number of places where this species can thrive.
