This biogeography exhibit shows the distribution of deer and deer relatives around the world. The world map painted as the background shows important geographical features, such as mountains and deserts.
The animals that live in these climates are extremely varied, as can be seen by their antlers or horns. Horns and antlers are very different in nature. Antlers are shed each year and can be very complex. Horns are usually simpler, and are permanent structures.
