Discover The Social Element In The Society Of Deer As You Live In Human Societies

Living in  groups is what gives deer some strength and confidence. The tendency to live in herds protects it from several dangers and predators, and at the same time provides some amount of security in terms of food and shelter too. There are about 25 deer in a herd of deer.

The stag or the male deer is the dominant in the herd of deer made up of a large number of females. Stags are quite aggressive when it comes to protecting their partners from rival deer or guarding their territories.

Horns are quite often used in a duel with a fellow deer. They often  get damaged and dented. Male deer have a new pair of horns on their heads every year. It is only the Chinese water deer that has the same set of horns throughout it life.

The woodlands of the northern hemisphere are known to have a diversity of about 40 species of deer. The UK could boast of housing six distinct and different species. While all other species of deer have been brought to the isles from exotic locales, only  the red deer and the roe deer can claim to be natives of the isles.

Deer spend most of their time rummaging through the grounds for leaves to be eaten. They identify their choices for food after quite some consideration. So, going through shoots and leaves for food takes up quite some time. Together with some grasses and fruits, they form the staple diet of deer.

Deer have been hunted down the centuries for their skins and meat. They are even reared in commercial units for their meat. New Zealand can boast of having more than 3,000 deer farms.
