White-tailed deer

Odocoileus virginianus


White tailed deer remains found on a birding trail in the Devil's Millhopper, a massive sinkhole. Pictures include the lower mandible, scapula, leg, some skull fragments, dried skin, and hair.


The Devil's Millhopper has its own microclimate, a bit like a rain forest in the sinkhole itself. The deer was found on a trail inside of the park but outside the hole.


The birding trail started smelling like death many yards before coming across the skeleton. I suspect scavengers scattered its remains all along the foliage surrounding the trail.
