The Small Red Brocket (Mazama bororo) is a small species of deer in the Cervidae family.[2] It is endemic to Atlantic Forest in Paraná and São Paulo in southeastern Brazil. This species, which only was scientifically described in 1996, is threatened by habitat loss.[1] Though its size and structure most resemble that of the Pygmy Brocket (M. nana), its coloration is very similar to that of the Red Brocket (M. americana).[3] It resembles hybrids between these two species even more closely, but differs from both, and their hybrids, in karyotype.[4]
