Family Cervidae


Moose
Reeves' Muntjac


The Cervidae family is composed of deer and their relations the moose, caribou, and elk. Members of this family are found all over the world in just about every type of climate. They also relocate well and have been introduced into areas that had no native cervids. They range in size from the 18 pound Andean Pudu to the 1400 pound North American Moose. One characteristic shared by all cervids is long, slender legs. Almost all species in this family grow antlers (at least in the male) and they chew cud (much like a cow). Most cervids are herd animals though a few species are solitaryWhat does solitary mean?. Most species are browsing animals though a few are grazers.
