Real White-tailed Deer Skull Plate
The white-tailed deer is the most widespread artiodactyl found in North America. White-tailed deer have good eyesight and acute hearing, but depend mainly on their sense of smell to detect danger. Males of this species possess antlers that are shed from January to March and grow out again in April or May. Antlers are extensions of an animal's skull, made from true bone.
