The water deer is native to China and Korea, and it has been introduced to the UK and France. As in musk deer, males of the species have elongated canine teeth. These can be over 2 inches (5 cm) in length, and have resulted in water deer being known colloquially as vampire deer.

The southern elephant seal is the largest seal and the largest member of the order Carnivora. Its name comes from both its size and the trunk-like proboscis seen on adult males. This proboscis can be used to reabsorb moisture from exhalations, allowing the seals to conserve moisture while spending the mating season on land.
Recent declines in the numbers of southern elephant seals have been observed, but the cause remains unknown.
