ABSTRACT: The samples of digestive tract contents from just died Chinese water deer Hydropotes inermis and fresh feces were obtained in Shanghai, China. Microbial DNA was extracted and high-throughput sequencing was performed on the v3-v4 variable region of the 16S rRNA of microorganisms. The Digestive tract and feces can be measured more than 1% microbes about 16 phyla. Digestive tract accounted for 9 phyla, 104 genera. The feces accounted for 16 phyla, 148 genera. The feces contain all the phylum level microbes in the digestive tract. Digestive tract and fecal dominant bacteria are Firmicutes. The samples from Whole vegetation feeding was significant difference with which from half –vegetation feeding in the microbial diversity of the digestive tract. The digestive tract of microbial diversity was higher in the whole vegetation feeding, the Shannon index was 2.33 ± 0.24. The digestive tract of microbial diversity was lower in the half –vegetation feeding, the shannon index was 1.7 ± 0.19.
