Collection of scaled drawings of the Taruca

The Taruca (Hippocamelus antisensis), or northern Andean deer, is a deer species located in South America that dwells in the high altitude regions of Peru, Chile, Bolivia, and Argentina. The Taruca Deer is a medium-sized deer with a stocky body.

Taruca fur is a light shade of brown with small white patches all around their head, neck, tail, and underbelly. Both male and female Taruca Deer have a black “Y” or “V” pattern above their forehead. Taruca Deer are known to live in groups of up to seven, including males, females, and fawns (newborn deers). The social structure of the Taruca herd is unique when compared to different species of deer as it is led by a female deer.

Taruca have standing shoulder heights between 2’7”-3’ (79-91 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 4’11”-5’7” (150-170 cm), and overall weights of 99-143 lb (45-65 kg). The lifespan of a wild Taruca is roughly 8-10 years.
