The Deer is the 5th animal in, and the land equivalent of the Squid and Reindeer.


The Deer:


The Deer is a circular animal, with two large black eyes and a brown body. Its ears are large and a lighter shade compared to thre rest of its body, while its antlers are lighter still, being a noticeable tan colour.


Deer move faster than normal on land, but drain water much more quickly. When you are a deer and are being chased by a predator, use your speed boost to flee from the predator. Beware of hills and other obstacles that you cannot pass through, however, as curving around an obstacle can give your predator an opportunity to attack you! If you have a straight path that you can follow to escape from your predator, you should be fine and able to lose your predator or jump into a hiding hole for safety. Select your hiding hole carefully, though---if your predator camps you in the hiding hole and you do not have any waterholes nearby, you could run out of water and eventually die of thirst!

Beware of Foxes, since they can pull you out of the hole while trying to hide. Try to farm in safe places with low predators.

  • The deer has an unreleased ability, called "deerHoof." It must be related to the donkey's ability. The unused deer hoof looks like this:
  • Unlike its Arctic version, The Reindeer, it cannot control itself on Ice.
