The olfactory communication signals in eleven individuals of sambar deer were studied. They marked the objects in the enclosure with the secretions of diverse specialized integumentary glands. The tendency to sniff the marked sites was more consistent among females than in males. Both sexes of this species of deer depend considerably on olfactory cues during various social interactions.
