The animals found in the Dewas state are the same as those elsewhere in Central India. Of the larger kinds tigers are practically never meet with, there being no jungle affording suitable cover. Leopards are seen occasionally in the hills. Of deer the Sambhar (Cervus unicolor) frequents the hills by Raghogarh (S.B.), while the smaller species of deer, the black-buck (Antelope, Cervi Capre) and Chinkara (Gazella benetii) are to be seen everywhere. The usual birds and fishes occur throughout the state.
