Deers in winter …

 

Deer (singular and plural) are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the elk, reindeer (caribou), the Western roe deer, and the Eurasian elk (moose).

Female reindeer, and male deer of all species (except the Chinese water deer), grow and shed new antlers each year.

In this they differ from permanently horned antelope, which are in the same order, Artiodactyla.
