View Full Version : Please Help A Student. Deer species identification

01-13-2013, 10:16 AM
Hi, I'm a student working on an assignment for my Animal Care course, but a certain aspect of said assignment is holding difficulties for me. Was wondering if I could get some help.

Earlier in the autumn, we went on trips to zoos, our last zoo being...Terrible. Anyway, I'm doing a part of my essay on the deer but for the life of me I cannot identify the species. I can probably pass this assignment without it but it would be nice to have it down. I couldn't identify the species because there wasn't any signs around the place telling me what species it was, and I'm not specialised in deer enough to know. I'll put a picture below. It was about as tall as I am, maybe a little shorter and I'm 6"0 tall.

Approximately where was this picture taken at? Just a general Idea of where, you do not need to be specific.

I believe this is a white tailed deer (female), but I am no deer expert...

Perhaps you got a photo from behind?
