Well. I've never been a particularly good community member, seldom commenting and such, so I thought maybe I should give something back to all of you wonderful people. So here goes:

Inspired by this thread by Dajhi, I'm making a bigger (hopefully better) one.


New, updated link

Old photobucket link

* This height is based on how big they are in comparison to poppies and the altar in the Ruins. May be inaccurate.
** Same as above.
***Which on of them, I don't know. Probably Philippine Mouse Deer.
**** No idea which species/subspecies.



! Important:

Remember, all these are male deer. Females are usually smaller, how much depends on which species we're talking about. To be sure, check Wikipedia or something.

And reindeer, for example, vary between 150 -- 85 cm, and many of the others' heights depends on which subspecies we're talking about, so be sure you're checking that!

Absolutely tracking!

I would like to see a mouse deer and elk on here, personally. ouo

I'm sure the list will grow as time moves on.

It's nice to see you, Apeldille. ♥

Hm, Serenai, if the mouse der

Hm, Serenai, if the mouse der you're talking about is a chevrotain, then it isn't really a deer. Perhaps I can squeeze it in anyway :3

[e] bumping this beacuse I need help.

Would the standard Endless

Would the standard Endless Forest Deer and maybe mini/God size be possible to add there? I doubt there are accurate sizes, but it could be something to consider.

I can try. I've been trying

I can try. I've been trying to figure out how tall they are, comparing them to the poppies, the altar in the ruins, and so on, and if that is somewhat accurate, they would be about 1 m at the shoulders (if not less)

If you look at their antlers, however, they are something like a red deer's or an elk's, which would mean they are about, hm, let's say 1.4 m at the shoulders.

On the other hand I have no idea how big or small things are here in TEF, lol.


edit:
Vee: Sure. I have a ruler-thing on one side measuring them in metres already but a human might be better for putting things in perspective.

[e] again: Okay, Eucladoceros!

and also whoa this will become a huge picture

I wouldn't bother with

I wouldn't bother with Eucladoceros. The online information is unreliable and contradicts book-written studies I have. There are lots of Euc types and the sizes range from 5ft - 8ft ^^'

I would recommend sticking to deer species that have their genus' pinned down for a size chart like this which needs specifics (:

If you have suggestions, feel free to tell me and I'll probably add them.

This has planted the seed of an idea in my mind...

Also, I find it amazing I can recognize so many species by their silhouette, when before playing this game I had little to no interest in deer or related species.

I don't strive to be the best, but instead I strive to do my best, and always give it my all every time.

And now that I see the species compared I realized how huge Illrose is, since her height is based of a male moose. xD

Oh, this is fantastic... very helpful. I particulary like the size of the elk, perhaps a tad bigger for my deer. Very well done, it's neat and clean and easy on the eye.

What the...? I haven't

What the...? I haven't commented on this? I linked it on my updates page and credited you :3

Either way, this is beyond awesome and just fun to look at. Maybe one day some antelope/gazelle species could be added?

TEF deer are kinda chubby, aren't they? xD

Edit: Also, I recommend this website to anyone researching ungulate species http://www.ultimateungulate.com
