The Gray Brocket (Mazama gouazoubira) is a species of brocket deer[2] from northern Argentina, Bolivia, eastern and southern Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. It formerly included the Amazonian Brown Brocket (M. nemorivaga)[3] and sometimes also the Yucatan Brown Brocket (M. pandora) as subspecies.[4] Unlike other species of brocket deer in its range, the Gray Brocket has a gray-brown (not reddish) pelage.
