1) The mousedeer's name is Sang Kancil and his enemy, the crocodile, is Sang Buaya.
Sang Kanchil. The birth of the great Malay Empire of Melaka began with a courageous little brown mousedeer, called a pelanduk or popularly referred to as Sang Kanchil.

2) The pronunciation of it is a little hard to Anglicize because of some inflections native speakers put on the words but it's basically Kahn-Chill, in a nutshell. If the full name, Sang Kancil/Kantchil is used (I take it the second may be an Indonesian/Borneo way of spelling it, since in Malaysia, the first is what I've been accustomed to), it's Saahng Kahn-Chill.
