deer

I ain't seeing no buffalo, but there sure as heck are a bunch of deer around here. One of the cutest, and surprisingly menacing creatures, at least to suburbia, is the deer. Don't let those doe eyes and bushy tails fool you, turn your head at the wrong time and your Rhododendrons are gone! So check out all this stash of deer products you won't be disappointed in, and forget about your lost gardening award.

What would you do if a tiny little deer came up to you in the middle of nowhere and started licking your ankle? This woman was as lost about it as we would have been. The last thing that we or she would have wanted to do was rescue the deer while taking it away from its mother and natural habitat. 

So, after a while of staying in the area with nothing to give the little guy, the woman left. But her thoughts stayed with the little deer, unable to stop worrying about it, so that night, she went back to see if it was still alone or if its mother had taken it back, and the deer was right there, waiting. Thank god that she did what she did, since, after taking it Turner's Deer Camp Fawn Rescue, they found out that the deer was no more than a few days old and that it almost didn't make it multiple times. 

It's a happy ending story where the lovely deer is now doing much better. It'll stay in the rescue for a while and then be released into the wild to live on its own, and this is exactly the kind of positive news we are so happy to hear today.

Baby Dik-Diks Are So Tiny It Hurts

At just about 15 inches tall, Dik-Dik's might just be the cutest animal around! Dik-dik's are actually the world's smallest antelope species, a "dwarf" antelope, as if they couldn't be any cuter -- these animals are fun-sized forever. 

They are commonly found in southern Africa and have tiny tufts of hair that are small horns, much like a giraffe. The males have the horn and the females don't, just like deer. 

Dik-dik's seem to be a mix of everything we love and combined into one insanely cute animal.

Meet The Pudú, The World’s Smallest And Cutest Deer

Love miniature animals? Now you can add one to your list of adorable: the endangered southern pudu, which is the world's smallest deer.

Native to South America, the genus includes two species:  Pudu Mephistopheles who live in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. And pudu puda, the most common in captivity, lives in Chile and Argentina, reported by Deer of the World Organization. 

The term "pudú" itself is derived from the Mapuche people of south-central Chile. Because they live on the slopes of the Andes Mountain Range, they are also known as the "Chilean mountain goat". 

The pudu puda can reach a height of 45 cm and weigh up to 13.4 kg, but its northern cousin never exceeds 35 cm and 6 kg. As they're extremely fearful, we know very little of how they live in the wild except that they're solitary animals with the exception of mating season. They take refuge in temperate forests, where their small size and the dense vegetation allow them to hide from predators. 

Pudús are crepuscular, most active in the morning, late afternoon, and evening. Their home range generally extends about 16 to 25 ha (40 to 62 acres), much of which consists of crisscrossing pudú-trodden paths. Today, the southern pudu's population is declining and the northern pudu is too little known for its status to be determined.

Fawn Stranded In Lake Get's Rescued But It Gets Even Better

While enjoying a fun day out on the Folsom Lake, Kenny Croyle was with his wife and in-laws when they came across something that didn't look right.  

Croyle told FOX40, "Another boat had their flag up and we didn't really see anybody in the water. So we just slowed down just to be careful. Didn't know exactly what was going on."

The other boat had just rescued a fawn that was struggling to stay afloat in the deep part of the lake, far from shore. 

Croyle continued, "And they yelled at us and let us know there was another one. The mom, the doe, was heading for shore but she was quite a ways away."

That's when Croyle and his family came across the second fawn in the lake. The poor struggling fawn was confused and looking for its mom. Croyle said, "So, I put my life jacket on, jumped in after it and picked it up. As soon as I picked it up, it kind of went limp. It was very relieved I think, very tired."

Unsure if the fawn would survive, they wrapped the scared fawn in a towel and helped it calm down. 

When they got closer to shore, Croyle and his family spotted the mother on the hillside, looking down trying to find her babies. Both boats were able to safely reunite the fawns with their mother. 

Watch the incredible footage of the rescue below! Thank you to Croyle, his family, and the occupants of the other boat!

Photographer Captures Beautiful Every Day Moments Of The Urban Deer In The Streets Of Nara, Japan

The Sika deer In Nara, Japan are not restricted to forests or parks, but rather mingle in the urban center much like humans. Although viewed as a burden sometimes, the deer population is Nara is sacred and protected by law. A Japanese Photograoherr Yoko Ishii, captures the deer in everyday moments across the city, from collectively passing down a major street, to pausing to feed their young below a stoplight.

Ishii was inspired to photograph the ways the animals interact with common city infrastructure after observing a pair of deer paused at an intersection in 2011, and especially loves photographing them while the city is at its most bare. "These picturesque moments when early in the morning the deer can be found standing in the middle of desolate intersections, not bound by man's borders and laws, yet inhabiting a man-made city is fascinating and inspiring," she explains in a statement about her ongoing series, "Beyond The Borders". 

Ishii published a book of her photography titled Dear Deer in 2015, and will be included in this year's Auckland Festival of Photography in New Zealand later on this year. You can see more of her recent work on her website and Facebook.
