Did anyone else see this picture of a Sika/Fallow cross? Is this even possible?

I checked, the one reference that I have that lists known crosses, it doesn't show a fallow sika cross but it does show a fallow blacktail cross which always was sterile. A sika is a lot closer genetically than a blacktail. I'm guessing that if it's a cross it's sterile.

I don't think a sika can cross with a fallow.


sika are related to elk

Looks more like a sika+elk/red deer cross to me. I think they call them Silk or Silk-Grande

Not Silk Grande but Sika Grande. I agree with you on the look.

The body looks to be similar to a female red deer, the antlers look well kind of ugly to me, glad they cant reproduce.

TXNROG hit it on the head. Have seen similar looking fallow in the past on our real young bucks.

That looks like a Mesopotamian or either a Persian Fallow cross with dark color phase fallow to me. They are huge bodied for meat production. I have seen Mesopotamians in Texas before and they had huge bodies with small, unpalmated antlers.

More than likely it a young(2 year old)Fallow. Not a cross!
