This strange deer resided in Eurasia from Ireland at the Eastern Baikal Lake. This mysterious deer was very famous for its huge size. This giant deer was about 2.1 meter or 7 feet tall at the shoulder and its approximate weight was 90 pound. But the most astonishing thing was its long branched horns which are called antlers. Its antler were 12 feet from tip to tip. This strange species had been extinct from the Universe  before 5700 B.C.
