|LIST OF ALL LIVING DEER SPECIES|
|AXIS DEER (Axis axis) are natives of India and Ceylon, and are also called "chital" which means spotted deer in Hindustani.|
|FALLOW DEER (Dama dama dama) are from the Mediterranean areas of Europe and Asia Minor. Physically they are most remarkable for their palmate antlers, the projecting Adams apple in both sexes, and a prominent hair shaft on the male penile sheath.|
|ELK & RED DEER (Cervus elaphus) NEW!! 2002 Specials on Elk, Red Deer and Elk Hybrids! PHOTOS! We call ours elk, or by the Indian name, wapiti; and Europeans call theirs red deer, but whatever you call them, they're the same species, Cervus elaphus|
|SIKA DEER (Cervus nippon) are medium to small size deer from Japan, Formosa and the east coast of China and Siberia. Their name is the Japanese word for deer.|
|WHITETAIL DEER (Odocoileus sp.) have been around a long time. The species is 3½ million years old, and they are such awesomely successful survivors that they have not changed over these millions of years. They did not change because they are so well designed they did not need to. Whitetails are the oldest living deer species.|

|HOGS (Sus scrofa) are not native to the Americas. They originated in Eurasia, and over time there were several major importations to North America. The pure Eurasian "Russian" wild boar is also Sus scrofa. In fact, our domestic varieties were all derived from the wild Eurasian boars. Wild hogs in the US strictly speaking are feral, that is, domestics that have reverted to the wild, but even though there are hundreds of variations, there is still a true, identifiable, wild hog type.|
|AOUDAD (Ammotragus lervia) is also called the Barbary "sheep". They originate from North Africa on the Barbary Coast, thus the common name. They are neither sheep nor goat, but have features and blood proteins of each.|
|BLACKBUCK (Antelope cervicapra) are antelope named for the black coat of the most dominant males. The nondominant males, the females and young are a light brown. All blackbucks have a white eye ring, belly and legs.|
