Scientific Name

Odocoileus hemionus

Collective Term

A herd of deer

This beautiful and delicate creature is a prime example of a prey species, and with few defenses other than its nimble mind and agile body it must be constantly on the lookout for danger.

Deer are active and lithe with little excess body fat, and they enjoy and excel at most athletic pursuits. Their athleticism and grace create a fine first impression, but others find them to be scatterbrained and emotionally taxing.

Deer Personalities are Skittish

It might be too callous to describe deer as schizophrenic, their behavior is difficult to predict. With their propensity to withdraw emotionally for fear of getting hurt, deer often struggle to settle down.

Best known for their highly-strung and skittish behavior, deer personalities are shy and demure. Because their coquettish behavior is rooted in deeply buried insecurities, they are drawn to the entertainment industry as actors and models. By hiding behind the mask of characters they find temporary refuge from painful elements in their own lives.

The Secret to the Deer Personality's Success

The deer's quest for a balanced life goads it into wildly emotional searches, and stability may take the form of solitude or a relationship. But more often than not, sanctuary is found in its strong spiritual beliefs.

As a deeply spiritual person with strong religious convictions, the deer spends much time in the company of like-minded individuals. Deer are also habitual people-watchers and enjoy nothing better than quietly ruminating while the world goes by. The outdoors are where they feel most comfortable and they appreciate the freedom of wide open spaces, where their graceful movements and love for music can express themselves.

When it comes to their work, deer are not known for their stability - often changing jobs while looking for a long-term careers - in part because their relationships with their bosses are difficult. This is because most bosses tend to be larger, predatory animal personalities and proximity to lions, warthogs and bears make them nervous. Unless they are a member of a large team of workers, the resulting tensions cause problems.

Deer in the Wild

Extremely shy and wary, most deer spend their time in small herds, constantly surveying their surroundings as they nervously browse on grass and shrubs.

Male deer sport antlers ranging in size from inch-long stubs to handsome, multi-branched displays. Interestingly enough, reindeer are the only species of deer in which the female also has antlers.

Deer populations in North America are making a comeback. Because of the good press provided by the movie Bambi, communities are loathe to cull their numbers, and in many western states they have become significant pests and health hazards. Belying their large populations, there are fewer than fifty species of deer left in the world, with the majority found in Asia and South America.

Love & Friendship

Despite their timidity, deer are surprisingly adventurous lovers and are willing to participate in all forms of experimental fantasy sex. But once a deer draws the line; no one dare cross it.

Deer take pride in keeping fit and are well aware of their sex appeal -- with no qualms about using it to their advantage. Delicious outdoor encounters come from safe rendezvous with horses and mountain goats, and they are also attracted to the sensual aspects of swans, peacocks, and foxes. As always, the powerful and exciting zebra guarantees an interesting time between the sheets.

When seeking a long-term mate, deer are drawn to strong animal personalities that offer them protection from life's perils. While an ultimate prize would be a sable, giraffe or elephant, they'd happily settle for a comfortable grazing existence with a horse, bison, or sheep.

Once a deer commits itself to a partner, it will hang on to the relationship for all it's worth -- remaining faithful and supportive even if this fidelity is one-sided.
