    Most likely a chevrotain (Moschiola meminna).

    (Cross-posted from the newer picture.) There’s also a Yellow-striped Chevrotain (Moschiola kathygre) in Sri Lanka – it looks like the difference is in the habitat that they’re in (Well, that and skull measurement). Without knowing where the camera’s located, it’s hard to say – here’s the info I found at IUCN:

    “The Yellow-striped Chevrotain occurs in the Wet Zone of Sri Lanka, from Sinharaja Forest through the lowlands around Colombo north to Katagamuwa on the border of the Dry Zone at 6°24′N, 81°25′E, and into the highlands at least to the Kandy district (Groves and Meijaard 2005): specific localities are given in Groves and Meijaard 2005: 420).”

    There’s some better ID info for the Yellow-striped at http://preview.tinyurl.com/7a9bzc9 .
