The Insect-Eating Deer is a common animal throughout the North American Wastes. Its main diet consists of various insects, primarily ants. The Insect-Eating Deer uses its long snout to dig into insect burrows, and its long tongue to reach into the tunnels. Its tongue is covered in a saliva that acts like an adhesive, catching any insects that come into contact with it.
Males of the species will begin growing antlers from a young age, while the females do not grow antlers. They are used in attracting mates, as well as asserting dominance over other males.
