Coming in at # 4 on my Deer, with the most spectacular antlers in the wild series is the white tailed deer, by far the most common deer where I live, we see them quite often here and, my uncle even used to have one as a pet, when I was a kid, a big one can get about 4 feet in height and, weigh 500 pounds, but they are usually smaller, they can also run around 40 mph for a short time and, jump up to 15 feet high or 15 feet across. They can also be found all over the US, Canada and, Mexico, plus many other places over the world and, as with most deer, they do battle, with their antlers, for mating rights and, another interesting note is they shed their antlers and, regrow them every year, it's also said 1 in 10,000 female will also have antlers. Some information verified at Wikipedia, they can bond with humans and, are usually smart, affectionate, curious and, playful, they can be very dangerous during the rut though.
