Fallow Deer

Additional Links

Fallow Deer. (called 'fallow' from its reddish-brown color). (Hebrew, yachmur). The Hebrew word, which is mentioned only in Deuteronomy 14:5 and 1 Kings 4:23, probably denotes the Alcelaphus bubalis (the bubale or wild cow) of Barbary and North Africa. It is about the size of a stag, and lives in herds. It is almost exactly like the European roebuck, and is valued for its venison.
