Deer are the ruminant animals that can be seen grazing or eating plants in the wet grasslands, deserts, swamps, tundras, and forests. The smallest deer is South American Pudu (about 12 inches), and the largest one is the moose (7 feet). The males are known as a buck, whereas the females are called a foe. Also, the latter is generally smaller than the former. Deer have long, slender legs, large ears, short tails, and plain or spotted coats. They are the only animals that develop antlers, the bony growth on the heads. Deer shed their antlers and regrow them each year. These animals are herbivorous and eat only grass and plants, such as twigs and bark. They chew their food, swallow it, after that, bring it back up from the belly in the form of a cud. They chew the cud, swallow it again to digest in the stomach. Did you know? The tissue present in the antlers of deer is the fastest growing tissue on this planet.
