Description

This is a revised version with corrected color.
In late autumn, deer (Odocoileus virginianus) come together in small herds for the winter. Here you see a dominant male, two females and a young male. This herd will have a better chance of surviving the winter if they can stay together, so maintaining order is critical. Hormones secreted by the dominant male suppress testosterone levels in other males in the herd, reducing competition and stress during the autumn mating season. The foreground figures in this diorama were prepared by Charles E. Brandler, while the background painting is by Charles A. Corwin. The diorama was donated to the museum by Frederick G. Atkinson.
