Nature is a beautiful and wonderful thing. It is my firm opinion that we city folk don’t spend enough time communing with nature. There is so much that should be appreciated. Nature is a beautiful home to a lot of lovely creatures. From beavers to colorful insects to deer. there’s no animal as majestic as the deer: gracefully strutting through the forest, blending into the background.

Deer are the only group of animals in the world to have antlers. Antlers are the fastest growing living tissue in the world! A male deer is called a buck. Let’s talk about they amazing antlers! Antlers are extensions of an animal's skull found in members of the deer family. They are true bone and are a single structure. They are generally found only on males.

This amazing video was filmed in Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA on September 1st, 2016. It’s a 4-years-old Buck shedding his velvet. It looks amazing and terrifying at the same time! There’s so much more to deer antlers than fighting and impressing the ladies. But did you ever think about how they work?

From late March until early fall, a buck’s budding antlers are covered with a layer of fuzzy skin called “velvet,” like soft moss covering a smooth stone. Beneath this protective coating, blood vessels and nerves lace around rapidly developing bone, as if the animal were growing a femur with no muscle to surround it. As the antlers grow, they branch into increasingly larger forks.
