About this book

Skilfully blending anecdote and science, this is an engrossing and sometimes surprising explanation of antlered animals and their behaviour. The author describes the antlers worn by moose, caribou, elk and deer, their annual shedding and regrowth, the use of antlers as weapons, and as a sexual attribute during the rutting season.
