Many different species of animals live in the forest including larger animals like big cats, deer, and bears, and smaller animals, such as chipmunks, skunks, and foxes. There are three different types of forests: coniferous forests, characterized by cone-bearing trees like pine and fir, temperate forests, characterized by both cone-bearing trees and deciduous (broad leafed) trees that change color with the seasons, and tropical forests, with abundant rainfall and constantly warm temperatures. Forests are home to 80% of the earth’s biodiversity and are an important source of oxygen and carbon sequestration. Due to their large amounts of biodiversity and carbon sink abilities, the forests need to be protected. However, due to deforestation for agriculture, logging, and fires, the forests are being destroyed quickly causing many species to lose their home and the loss of essential carbon sinks.

Red Deer
Comparison illustration of the size of a Red Deer to an average human

The famous Red Deer (Cervus elaphus), is a member of the Cervidae family, originating in North America, Europe, Asia, and Northwestern Africa. Found mainly in the woodlands, Red Deer live in sexually isolated herds, except during the breeding season, when the males fight for the females. The Red Deer has been hunted for food and sport for a long time.

A fully grown Red Deer stands around 3'11" (1.2 m) tall showing off its reddish-brown coat, that darkens to grayish-brown in winter accompanying lighter undersides and a light rump. The Red Deer has long, regularly branched antlers with a total of 10 or more tines. 12-tined deer are called "Royals" and the 14-tined deer are called "Wilsons."

Red Deer have standing shoulder heights between 3’3”-3’11” (100-120 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 5’6”-8’6” (168-259 cm), and overall weights of 250-550 lb (113-250 kg). The lifespan of a wild Red Deer is roughly 10-15 years.

Tufted Deer
Scaled drawing comparing the size of a Tufted Deer to a typical person

The Tufted Deer (Elaphodus cephalophus) is a small species of deer distinguished by a conspicuous black hair tuft on its forehead. It is a similar relative of the Muntjac, except the Tufted Deer has a longer neck and legs, which give it a much leaner look. The coat is also rugged with short, straight fur, nearly black in the winter and white in the summer.

The lips, the tips of the ears, and the underside of the tails are white. The Tufted Deer roams far north in a wide region of central China in north-eastern Myanmar. Suffering from over-hunting and habitat destruction, this deer is considered near threatened.

Tufted Deer have standing shoulder heights between 1’7”-2’4” (48-71 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 3’7”-5’4” (109-163 cm), and overall weights of 35-110 lb (16-50 kg). The lifespan of a wild Tufted Deer is roughly 10-15 years.

Red Brocket
Comparison illustration of the size of a Red Brocket to an average human

The American Red Brocket (Mazama Americana) is a brocket species of deer found in the forests of South America stretching from Northern Argentina to Colombia and Guyana. Red Brockets have also been seen on Trinidad Islands and the Tobago Republic. Red Brocket coats are reddish-brown with unique coloration on the head and neck that are lighter, grayish-brawn, and partially black.

The inside of the Red Brocket's tail is white along with the underside of the body. Fawns are white, and the legs are blackish. Only the grown-up males have antlers, which are small and spiky. The American Red Brocket prefers the fruit if it is available and is usually lonely and remains in dense jungles. The animal snorts or stumps his hooves when alarmed. The American Red Brocket is the largest of the brockets.

Red Brocket have standing shoulder heights between 2’3”-2’4” (70-72 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 2’3”-4’3” (70-130 cm), and overall weights of 35-55 lb (16-25 kg). The lifespan of a wild Red Brocket is roughly 7-12 years.

Grizzly Bear
Comparison illustration of the size of a Grizzly Bear to an average human

The Grizzly Bear (Ursus Arctos Horribilis) is a subspecies of the brown bear with a large population. The Grizzly Bear came from Europe and Asia, but can only be found today in North America and Canada. The Grizzly Bear has brown fur throughout its body, but golden and grey fur is on the back of its body and gives it a squatting look. The diet of Grizzly Bears contains fish (primarily salmon), moose, bison, and black bear while also including seeds, fruit, and a variety of leaves. Due to ruthless widespread hunting, the numbers of wild Grizzly Bears have decreased dramatically in the 1970s and 1980s. However, it has increased recently because of certain laws on bear-hunting.

Male Grizzly Bears have a shoulder height between 3’6”-4’6” (1.07-1.37 m) and a weight in the range of 400-800 lb (181-363 kg). The shoulder heights of females are between 3’-3’8” (.91-1.12 m) with weights from 300-400 lb (136-181 kg). The Grizzly Bear has an overall body length of roughly 5’6”-8’ (1.68-2.44 m), standing height of 8’-9’9” (2.5-3 m), and a typical lifespan of 20-25 years in the wild or up to 45 years when protected in captivity.

Chital
Comparison illustration of the size of a Chital to an average human

The Chital (Axis Axis) is a deer species native to the Indian South, also known as the Spotted Deer, and the Axis Deer. In India and Sri Lanka, it lives in herds of up to 100 or more in grasslands and forests. The Chital's coat is brown, reddish overhead, and a white patch underneath and along the side of their bodies.

The male Chital usually has three-tined antlers that branch lengths of up to 39 inches (100 cm). Chital are most active in the morning hours and will rest in the midday heat in shaded areas. Though the grass is most of their diet, Chital will browse the trees during the dry season and even stand at their rear legs to access higher leaves.

Chital have standing shoulder heights between 2’6”-3’3” (75-100 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 3’7”-4’7” (110-140 cm), and overall weights of 99-187 lb (45-85 kg). The lifespan of a wild Chital is roughly 10-15 years.
