Contender 1: Fallow Deer

Fallow Deer, scientifically known as Dama dama, are medium-sized deer species native to Mediterranean regions of Europe, Asia Minor, and North Africa. They are characterized by their distinctive coloration, with a coat that varies from light brown to dark black, and their white-spotted back. Another key feature is their palmate antlers, which are flattened and shaped like a hand. Fallow Deer are known for their agility and graceful running, reaching speeds of up to 30 miles per hour. They are herbivores, mainly feeding on grass, leaves, and buds.

Fun Fact: Fallow Deer exhibit a phenomenon known as "lekking," where the males gather in an area called a lek during mating season and engage in elaborate displays to attract mates, often including vigorous fights with rivals.

Contender 2: Komodo Dragon

The Komodo Dragon, also known as the Komodo monitor, is a large species of lizard that can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh up to 300 pounds. They have rough, scaly skin, sharp claws, and a long, powerful tail. Their teeth are serrated and can deliver a venomous bite that can cause paralysis and death in their prey. They are native to the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang, and Padar.

Fun Fact: Komodo Dragons have a keen sense of smell and can detect carrion from up to 5 miles away.
