November 9, 2020

I am an Odocoileus virginianus
I'm pretty young at this stage
My scientific name translates to "hollow teeth"
Which you can examine* to determine my age.

*Although in most cases, deer are aged by examining their teeth and jaw bone after they have been hunted, not while the deer are sill alive.
