The two main groups of deer are the Cervinae, including the muntjac, the elk (wapiti), the fallow deer, and the chital; and the Capreolinae, including the reindeer (caribou), the roe deer, and the moose.
Deer are seasonally polyestrous animals that have multiple estrous cycles only during certain periods of the year, similar to horses, sheep, goats, and cats. A historic 1906 paper by Sakurai characterised the prenatal development of the deer embryo (cervus capreolus). The average prenatal development period for deer (Mule) is 200 days.
Deer are typically a uniparental species, where the offspring (fawn) is only cared for by the mother (doe).
