ABSTRACT
Deer, a hoofed animal, prized for centuries as game for food, sport, and commercial purposes. Deer are found throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and South America, and in northern Africa. There are nearly 100 different kinds, including the caribou, elk, reindeer, and moose. Largest is the moose, more than six feet (1.8 m) tall at the shoulders. Smallest is the Chilean pudu, almost as small as a rabbit.
