More information

Deer family (Cervidae) are ruminant hoofed animals that are characterized by the antlers of the stag. There are about forty species in 16 genera and four subfamilies. The males (at the reindeer also females) have antlers that they shed each year, probably to save energy in nutrient-poor seasons. A new antlers are usually larger and more complex than the previous one. The size and complexity of antlers show the health and age of the males and thus ensure dominance. When water deer, a primitive type, the antlers completely missing. Deer differ in size and weight, the Chilean Pudu, which is only 38 centimeters high and 8 kilograms can be heavy, until the moose, which 2.30 meters tall and 800 kilograms can be heavy. A male deer is called deer or buck and a female deer is called doe. Roe deer, however, one speaks usually of goat and goat and reindeer and elk bull and cow. All deer have a short-haired coat, lithe bodies with slender necks and legs, a short tail, large, high-set ears and large, side-mounted eyes. In many deer the boy have a spotted coat, which serves as camouflage on the forest floor. Deer occur mainly in woods and forests, although some species also on open grassy plains, swamps and tundra life. They live in Europe, Asia and North and South America. The red deer is also found in North Africa. Subfamily: capreolinae (mock deer, roe) Subfamily: Muntiacinae (muntjakherten) under Family: Hydropotinae (water deer) Subfamily: cervinae (real deer) The representatives in Europe are: elk, fallow deer, roe deer, red deer and reindeer. In the Benelux are the red deer, fallow deer and roe for. The axis deer lives in Sri Lanka and India. The water deer (Hydropotes inermis, along river banks in China) is like a deer but without antlers and protruding upper canines. The swamp deer (Blastocerus dicholomus) lives in Brazil and the Virginia Deer east of the Rocky Mountains. The small Chilean Pudu (Pudu Pudu) lives in the rain forests.

Antlers is the set of existing bone horns of deer. It mainly serves to intimidate sexual competitors and also as a weapon. In most species only the male carries antlers. Only when the female reindeer has antlers, but it is smaller than that of the male. The water deer has no antlers at all. A young calf gets all lumps on his forehead bone, which later became the antlers will grow. The antlers are shed annually and re-formed, usually larger and more robust than the previous one. If the antlers are fully grown, the skin itches, so the deer sanding off against trees and shrubs. The circulation of the antlers stops so that it becomes numb and die. Yet it still takes months to shed. After the skin is sanded, discolour the antlers. The final color is different for each species and also depends on the vegetation.
