Perruque deer skull. Antler deformities come in various shapes and sizes and, although
none are particularly common, they are typically associated with
hormonal imbalances. A perruque head describes antler growth that
has been starved of testosterone. The antler continues to grow under its
protective velvet covering until the development is such that the buck
is blinded or the skull splits. Those surviving into late summer
inevitably succumb to fly-strike and die.

This is an Alaskan shorebird called the red-faced cormorant. This bird eats fish. I like the red face on it. This bird’s habitat is on rocky cliffs there they will lay there eggs on the cliffs. This bird makes there nests out of branches, old fishing nets, and sea grass from the ocean floor.
