Red deer Punahirv Cervus elaphus
Is it surprising?
Before the storm last night the weather at the seaside coastal meadow was a little milder and the large antler-bearers come to drink sea water when possible – food is bland and in addition to the salt there are minerals too. This is why the antlers of the animals close to the sea are always a little larger and more impressive than those of the mainland inhabitants at the same age.
