Although whitetail deer are currently incredibly prevalent throughout their endemic regions, at one point in the late 19th and early 20th century they were severely overhunted and actually on the verge of becoming endangered. Thankfully, their numbers have rebounded from 30,000 to over 30 million in just 100 years. In fact, chances are if you’ve lived in or visited North America you’ve spotted one of these majestic animals simply due to how common they are!
One of the most common land mammals across North America and even parts of Central and South America, the whitetail deer can be found in a multitude of ecosystems, including forests and areas of deciduous vegetation, river valley bottomlands, foothills, and mountains.
Scientific Name: Odocoileus virginianus
Characteristics: Although female deer are generally skittish and easily frightened, bucks can be very hostile, especially during mating season when they’re more inclined to be aggressive. Hand painted and sculpted by our talented artists, all Safari wildlife figurines make exceptional gifts for nature lovers and are perfect additions to a collection or diorama.
Size and Color: 4.95 inches long and 4.17 inches tall, this whitetail buck model is about an inch taller than a soda can on its side. Like all male whitetail deer, this figurine has a predominantly white tail and underside as well as a brown coat and tawny antlers.
