Animal of the day – 10/01/2010 – The White Tailed Deer

White Tailed Deer

The animal of the day is the White Tailed Deer. (Did you know: These bad boys are powerful! They can run up to 40 miles per hour, jump 9 foot fences, and swim 13 miles per hour! They would KILL in a triathlon!

Like most deer, only the males have antlers [which they shed and regrow every year], but 1 in 10,000 females also has antlers!
