    Some information and records about musk (She, ) and river deer (Zhang, /) can be found in local chronicles or documents in Guizhou. They were taken as the same species in terms of a medicinal animal. The records for their living areas in Guizhou were neither clear nor in detail in the Ming Dynasty, but were specific in the Qing Dynasty and more concise in the period of the Republic of China. The living areas for musk and river deer reduced from the Ming Dynasty to the Republic of China. Such change was believed to be the result of the natural environment and the social factors as well, such as the reclamation of mountain areas in Guizhou, the reduction of forests, and the demand and resulting exorbitant prices that led to excessive hunting.
