Mule Deer

Odocoileus hemionus

We have lots of mule deer at Los Luceros, which are named for their large ears, which look like the ears of a mule. New Mexico has two sub-species of mule deer, the Rocky Mountain mule deer in the northern part of the state, and the desert mule deer in the south. Mule deer enjoy eating leaves, shrubs, and grasses, like those found at the site.
