Cervidae is the family of deer. It is a close relation of Bovidae, which includes antelopes and giraffe.
There are 2 branches of this family Cervinae (Old World deer) and Capreolinae (New World deer).
So in Cervinae there are 31 species.
The first tribe in Cervini is Munticini
Munticini includes just 2 genus
Genus Elaphodus contains just one species, that of the Tufted deer
Genus Muntiacus contains 12 species, all of the worlds Muntjac species
The other (2nd) tribe is Cervini (true deers) and includes 7 genus some of these only have a few species so will be dealt with together.
In the first group we will include:
Genus Ruserus (1 species), Genus Panolia (1 species), Genus Elaphurus (1 species), Geuns Dama (2 species) in that order.
and now just one genus on each set
Capreolinae which is the new world sub-family of deer. This includes 3 tribes of deer
Tribe Capreolini which includes 2 genus
Genus Capreolus (2 species) and Genus Hydropotes (1 species) (pictures in this order)
Also Tribe Alcenini which includes one Genus Alces with just one speices – the elk
The last tribe is Tribe Odocoileini which includes 7 genus
I will deal with these 7 genus in two blocks
In the first block:
Genus: Blastocerus 1 (species), Hippocamelus 2, Odocoileus 3, Ozotoceros 1, Pudu 2 and Rangifer 1
Last genus is genus Mazama
