The Deer is a members-only land animal. They came out December 5, 2013. They even had their own puzzle in the Jamaa Journal (November 7, 2013, Volume 103). As of October 2015, they were listed on the Choose an Animal Menu as 'Exploring'. They returned on December 3 of 2015. On March 31, 2016, it was announced that they would be traveling, again, but returned on December 15, 2016. In March 2017, they traveled once again, however, there was no warning issued. Later, they returned on November 30, 2017. The Deer returned once again for the 2020 Jamaalidays in July and once more on December 3, 2020, but left on February 4, 2021. They were re-released on July 22, 2021, for another Jamaalidays in July. They were re-released again on February 3, 2022, but left on March 11, 2022.

Default Appearance

Their appearance is muscular, tall, and somewhat stiff. It also appears to have a long snout (nose). The default deer has no antlers and a nicked ear. They have light brown fur and a tan underbelly.


Acts Description
Sits with all hooves in one spot in front of belly.
Tiptoes backward on all of its legs and then jumps back.
Head dangles down and legs curl up. Breathing is noticeable.
Like a deer jumping through the forest, they hop high up and down repeatedly.
Pretends to be eating grass before jumping up, eyes looked alerted/startled and the deer turns both ways as if watching for predators.


  • Deer were released when the 2013 Jamaalidays started. This is possibly due to deer traditionally having a major role in Christmas (which the Jamaalidays are based on).
  • If the spot pattern is used on a deer, the spots go all over the neck to the back like a real life Deer.
  • The special plushies for the deer include a yellow deer with an Aviator Hat and a jetpack, a green deer with a hat and sled, and a blue deer on a wintry sled, wearing a gift box.
  • It is possible the Deer's alpha is Sigurd, an alpha resembling a male deer, due to a statue of him located in the Chamber of Knowledge.
  • Similar to the Eagle, Fox, and the Arctic Fox, their play action has to do with obtaining food.
  • They have their own animated short like the KangarooCheetah, Rhinoceros, and Otters, named "Oh Deer".
  • In October 2015, they were suddenly listed as "Exploring" and no longer available for purchase without any warning or explanation from AJHQ.
  • Certain neck items clip through the Deer when sitting, such as the Right Friendship Necklace, Turquoise Necklace, Diamond Necklace, Spirit Amulet, and Clover Amulet.
  • Deer used to only come out during the Jamaalidays , but now they're an all year round animal.
  • When you sleep, a glitch occurs in which the Deer appears to lose its nose.
  • There is a glitch where, if a Deer does the “Play” action, the Deer will stop mid head-turn during its look-about.
