Pere David's Deer is a large and strangely-shaped deer from a small area of northeast China. Over 4 feet tall at the shoulder,
it is slightly taller than Red Deer. Named after French missionary Armand David, it is currently extinct in the wild
but a re-introduction programme from stock from Woburn Abbey, England, is underway.
The stag (above) has antlers and re-grows his antlers at least once and sometimes twice a year.
The hind (above left and centre) does not have antlers. Above right is a stag re-growing his antlers.
Pere David's Deer has a reddish brown coat in the summer (above centre) and a greyer brown or fawn coat in winter (others above/below).
The dark bar on the back over the shoulder can be seen on the light coats of the herd.
