The red deer belongs to the tribus of the true deer (Cervini) in demarcation to the Muntiacini in the southeast Asia and the New World deer. Most species of New World deer can be found on the American continent. But also the roe deer as well as reindeer and moose belong to it.
Among the true deer, the red deer is characterized by a particularly large and widely ramified antlers. This as hunt-trophy desired antlers is developed only by male animals. The female animals do not carry antlers.
In Central Europe, the red deer is one of the largest free-living wild animals. It occurs here almost only in forest biotopes. Originally, however, the red deer is an animal species of open and semi-open landscapes.
Only the stags have antlers, which start growing in the spring and are shed each year, usually at the end of winter. Antlers, which are made of bone, can grow at a rate of 2.5 cm a day. A soft covering known as velvet helps to protect newly forming antlers in the spring.
Antlers can become heavy up to 140 cm of length and up to 21 kg of weight!
