Sika Deer
Dear thumb

Chick, Gazelle

The Sika Deer is one of two starter animals. In Story Mode, two Sika fawns have lost their mother and must learn to survive without her.


The sika deer is a member of the genus Cervus. The sika deer is one of the few deer species that does not lose its spots upon reaching maturity. Sika deer can be active throughout the day, though in areas with heavy human disturbance, they tend to be nocturnal.

Life as a Sika Deer

The Sika Deer is the first non-DLC Grazer it is possible to play as. As a size 2 Grazer, the Sika Deer has very low base stats, and can prove to be a challenging animal to use for first time players. As it only has a low average movement speed, its best attribute is its Stamina, which it can use to help outrun predators of an equal speed.

Unique Challenges:

Sika Deer as Prey

The Sika Deer are among the most common of the cervidae grazers during the early years, especially around the southern territories. Their low average Speed and poor Life can make them an easy target for small, developing predators at least until some slightly bigger prey comes along.
