Did you know that there are about 34 species of deer? A key characteristic of deer is that they have antlers, which are boney growths that form from the deer's head. Unlike horns, antlers are not covered in keratin, but rather with a thin layer of skin, called velvet. The world's smallest deer, the Pudu, is a native of Argentina and Chile. The Pudu averages only 14-16" tall! It can also climb trees, and often climbs bamboo stalks to escape danger. Check out some cute deer gifts below:
