    Too bad all deer weren’t hairless. No hair slippage.

    For the hunter this is the best reference, anyone can have. This shows bone placement, prefect for both gun and bow hunters.
  9. That's one freaky looking deer!! Almost looks like something you'd see in Africa! But I agree on it being good reference. Does anyone know why it's like that? I used to breed rats for my reptiles. I was able to breed rex rats and create hairless rats, but in reality it's actually a gene mutation that causes immune deficiency and their hair loss is genetic. Once I bred some hairless rats. I could take a male hairless and breed it to a standard rat female with hair. And I would get more hairless rats. It was never good to use a hairless female as a breeder, they weren't great mothers.

    I would guess a bad case of mange .. but the skin does not look scabby and the eyes look clear and not that of a sick animal.
