Sika doe

 

The sika deer is a member of the genus Cervus, a group of deer also known as the „true deer“.

Formerly, sika were grouped together in this genus with nine other species.

Now, only the sika and red deer remain, the latter being divided into three separate species: European red deer, central Asian red deer and American elk (though this remains controversial).
