MAGICAL: Real Life Unicorn Deer Killed In Slovenia

November 14, 2014

This is the skull of a 'unicorn' roe deer killed by a hunter in Slovenia. Apparently the deer had a rare deformity caused by an early injury that made both antlers grow together into a single massive corn. Obviously, I need that corn to brew some of my most powerful magic potions. Some tears would have been nice too.

    I can't wait until antler binding becomes a practice for high-end slouveniars

    i retract my previous claim, although im still sceptical:

    "Roe bucks have been recorded with coalesced antlers (see right), where the main beams merge into a single thick mass; they are shed as a single unit. Coalescence seems to be the result of larger, thicker pedicles being situated closer together than normal; in his 1995 book, Prior notes that this condition may be more common in elderly bucks, as the pedicles thicken and shorten with successive antler castings."

    It is possible to fabricate unicorn bulls and goats by a small procedure when they are young.

    I love the fact that they must have took the skin off so some wealthy Eastern European can wear a unicorn coat. *wipes the capitalistic tears away*

    I wonder if this deer would have killed other males during fights. It looks like his antler might go through the antler defenses of other males.

    would have been nice to see a unicorn with the skin still on...

    But the skin is the best bit. Tastes like popcorn.

    you keep calling the antler "corn"

  • Palpable Ovaltine

    Uni-corn

    Equidae and cervidae are both ruminants, but I wouldn't say they are in the same family... Darn it!

    Can any of you photoshop this to an actual deer? I think it would be a cool addition to this article.

    Actually I was thinking of making the horn blue and adding stars. Somehow a wizard deer just seems natural to me...
