Join The Debate

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: Moose

The Moose, also known as the Alces alces, is the largest member of the deer family. They are known for their massive size, with males weighing up to 1500 pounds and standing over 6 feet tall at the shoulder. Moose have long, slender legs and a humped back, with a distinctive flap of skin called a bell hanging from their throat. They are typically brown in color, with a darker mane and legs, and their antlers can span up to 6 feet across.

Fun Fact: Moose are excellent swimmers and can swim up to 6 miles per hour, using their powerful legs and large hooves to paddle through the water.
