Fact of the Day: Deer Antler

While deers are known for their antlers, but they can and will lose them. Almost all male deer will regrow their antlers every year.

Wow, every year!

DEZMOND said...

they should just leave them at the hunters' doorsteps so that those idiots wouldn't have to hunt them for antlers....

A new set every year? Pretty cool.

Out with the old, in with the new!

I wonder if it hurts like a new tooth. So technically hunters could pick up antlers on the forest floor if all they want is the trophy.

Pat Hatt said...

They sure get pretty big too

Didn't know they lost them every year

I always wanted a chandelier made of antlers but I only bought one when I discovered the animals shed their antlers and aren't killed for them.

I didn't know that! I thought they had the same antlers for life!

FINALLY...a fact that I DO know. hahhaa
After they lose them, while the new ones are growing in, they are covered with what we call "velvet" and they are sooo pretty.

Interesting. I didn't know that.

We have deer all winter long out back. So pretty.

That's kind of weird. I wonder if it hurts when they lose them. Kinda like how losing a tooth is kind of painful.

It's so amazing to me that they can carry that heavy load on their heads.
