The Sika deer is one of the few deer species that does not lose its spots upon reaching maturity. The color of the fur ranges from mahogany to black, and white individuals are also known. All Sikas are compact and dainty-legged with short, trim, wedge-shaped heads and a boisterous disposition. When alarmed, they will often display a distinctive flared rump, much like the American Elk.
