I think I should have called this show, “infundibula, blah, blah, blah”, and though I love to poke fun at the terms, the truth is that I love the language of biology or in this case zoology. Anyway, we are so lucky to have these large artiodactyl ungulates in the Cervidae – that was fun – out in the wilds of the borderlands.
The book I mentioned is Deer of the Southwest by Jim Heffelfinger. And the photos are mine. Two are of a large group out in the grassland. If you look closely you can spot some antlers. And I love the photo of the mulies in the orchard. I took that photo early in the morning with my phone.
