Deer (singular and plural) are the ruminant mammals forming the family Cervidae. The two main groups are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the elk (wapiti), the fallow deer and the chital, and the Capreolinae, including the reindeer (caribou), the roe deer and the moose. Female reindeer, and male deer of all species except the Chinese water deer, grow and shed new antlers each year. In this they differ from permanently horned antelope, which are part of a different family (Bovidae) within the same order of even-toed ungulates (Artiodactyla).

Deer's are selective feeders and mostly eat leaves and fruits. They also eat meat, but only when its in front of them; they don't go searching for it.

My brother, friend and I were canoeing at the Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, and I... being the weaker of the three, decided to be the photographer, because 1. I love taking pictures, and 2. I needed to take pictures for my photography class, and so as we were canoeing the 5 mile path, we came across this guy. It was such a beautiful sight, because I personally never saw a deer in Florida, let alone in the middle of a swampy area, with ALLIGATORS everywhere. Nature never ceases to surprise me.
