Candiacervus

By
Candiacervus is an extinct genus of deer native to Pleistocene Crete. Their most notable feature, besides their peculiar, spatula-shaped antlers, was their small stature: the smallest species, C. ropalophorus, stood about 40 cm at the shoulders when fully grown, as can be inferred from a mounted skeleton. As such, the genus is considered to be a textbook example of insular dwarfism. Other features are the relatively short limbs, the massivity of the bones and the simplified antler.[ Ironically, they were closely related to the giant Irish Elk, with some experts regarding Candiacervus as a subgenus of Megaloceros.(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candiace…)

I made the deer in PS CC2014 and Artrage4.Hope you like this little one:-)
