    Help with Muntjac foetus

    Hi chaps,
    I shot a pregnant Muntjac doe last night with a well developed foetus but am unsure what the round things are. I've only ever shot a couple of pregnant ones before and I don't recall seeing these things. They may have been there but just a lot smaller?

    I'm sure it's normal but I just don't know what they are,

    Cheers

    Spellchecker won't let me type this correctly! They are 'plac en tomes' (all one word), the placenta in ruminants.

    Deer get a special mention as they are larger and only about 4-6 which looks to be about what you have there exactly?
    Perfectly normal.
