information on the North Andean Deer.
The North Andean Deer has a variety of
names such as the Peruvian Guemel, the Peruvian Huemel and the Taruca. It is very similar
in appearance to the South Andean Deer, the main difference between the speices being the
form of the antlers. In the North Andean Deer they branch close to the rose and the skull,
while in the South Andean deer they branch from a small stem further along their length.
The antlers are between 20 and 30 cm in length. They are cast after the rut each year on
October or November and begin to grow again immediately. They are fully grown by the
following March. In stature the North Andean Deer is a small, short-legged deer. The coat
is rough and thick, and in colour is a greyish brown. There are white markings around the
throat. The ears are large and rounded with white insides. The tail is short, and unlike
that of the South Andean Deer the underside is brown and not white in colour.
