The Inspiration

From the Animal Series inspired by a trip to the San Diego Zoo with my daughter. Returning after several to the zoo, I felt it was time to continue the animal series. The animal series is not limited to wild animals, but all those that roam the earth.

Quick Note

The male Red deer is called a stag or hart, while the female Red deer is known as a hind. A young deer is called a fawn.

Since male deer have stronger and thicker neck muscles, as compared to the females, they appear to have neck manes.

Each year, antlers fall off and regrow. As they regrow, they are covered in a furry coat called velvet. The velvet is rich in nerves and blood vessels, allowing the antlers to regrow quickly.

All species of deer have a four chamber stomach which allows them to chew the cud. This is a processes of partially chewing food, regurgitating it, and chewing it again to make it easier to digest.

Conservation Status

[ x ] Endangered. Several species of deer that are completely extinct already. The Red deer found in Scotland is one that is in very serious trouble.
