Avery Island Wildlife - pam-and-edmund-mcilhenny

The deer on Avery Island are a subspecies of white-tailed deer called "Odocoileus Virginianus McIlhennyi," named after E. A. McIlhenny back in the 1920's by the Colorado Museum of Natural History, and reported by Frederic W. Miller in the Journal of Mammalogy in February, 1928. This buck searched for acorns, but dinner was assured, as there are specially planted feed plots around Avery Island to keep the deer healthy.
