The Tar'andus Deer

Image description.

The Tar’andus is a member of the deer family found in arctic and subarctic regions, from the Gathorn Mountains onwards stretching to the North over all the peninsula of Iol. They are the only deer in which both sexes have antlers. The broad hooves support the animal on boggy land or snow and have sharp edges that enable it to traverse rocky or frozen surfaces and to dig down to the grass and lichens on which it sometimes feeds.
