Although whitetail deer can be found in plentiful numbers all throughout their natural habitats, it was only a little less than 100 years ago that they were on the verge of becoming endangered. Fortunately, their numbers have increased by nearly 1000% in the last century. In fact, whitetail deer are so well populated that they’re seen as pests in urban and agricultural areas!
Whitetail deer are what’s known as a generalist, which means they can adapt to a wide range of habitats. They can be found all throughout Canada and the continental United States, and their populations even stretch all throughout Central America and into the northern part of South America.
Scientific Name: Odocoileus virginianus
Characteristics: Depicted by this figurine, when alarmed whitetail deer will actually raise their tail and show off the bright white fur to warn other deer in the area of possible danger. Like all Safari figurines, this model was hand painted and sculpted by professionals in order to assure life-like realism and quality whether it’s used for play, education, or display!
Size and Color: Like all whitetail deer, this figurine has a predominantly white tail and underside as well as a brown coat. 4.3 inches long and 3.65 inches tall, this figurine is an inch taller and longer than a deck of cards stood on its side.
