Deer have a great sense of hearing.

Deer are the only animals that have antlers. Deer have an excellent sense of smell, which allows them to detect predators from a long distance away. Deer lick their nose to keep it moist, which helps odor particles stick to it, improving their sense of smell. Deer have small teeth in the front of the bottom jaw, which they use for tearing and breaking apart food. They have no teeth in the front of the top jaw. Instead they have a hard palate, which is used in much the same way as teeth.

Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully.

The word “deer” was originally broad in meaning, but became more specific over time. In Middle English deer meant a wild animal of any kind. This was as opposed to cattle, which then meant any sort of domestic livestock that was easy to collect and remove from the land, from the idea of personal-property ownership and related to modern chattel  and capital.

Deer

For most types of deer in modern English usage, the male is called a “buck” and the female is termed a “doe”, but the terms vary with dialect, and especially according to the size of the species. For many larger deer the male is termed a “stag”, while for other larger deer the same words are used as for cattle: “bull” and “cow”.
