White-lipped deer gain their name from the white markings visible beneath the mouth and down the throat. The species has a brown coat that gets thicker during winter to provide added warmth. One of the largest deer species, the white-lipped deer can reach six feet in length and six hundred pounds. Males possess an imposing set of antlers, which can be as large as four feet in size. These antlers are shed and regrown each mating season.
