DSC00027 Male White-Tailed Deer (Crossing my path while on a evening hike)

SONY DSC Please view in black:)

Each year, male white-tailed deer grow and shed bone formations from the top of their head known as antlers. Most male animals in the deer family (Cervidae) have antlers. Caribou are unique to the deer family in that both male and female caribou typically grow antlers. In rare instances, female white-tailed deer may grow antlers. When this occurs it is generally the result of abnormally high levels of testosterone in the doe's body. For more info: www.whitetailstewards.com
