Deer Facts and Information
for the San Juan Islands
Here are some deer facts about the black-tail deer that live on the San Juan Islands Washington.
Some type of deer can be found on every continent except Australia and Antarctica -- they are literally found everywhere!
Antlers, which grow on male deer, are not the same as horns, which grow larger every year and are never shed. Antlers are shed every fall and begin growing again every spring. Did you know that antler tissue is the fastest growing living tissue on the planet? Cool!
Deer are fairly good, fast swimmers, and are known to swim between Islands. Like whales, they form matriarch family units and tend to stay in a centralized "home" area.
