Whitetail-Mule deer hybrids are often distinguished by their tail, among other characteristics.

Hybridization: A Tail of Whitetails and Mule Deer

Throughout history, crossbreeds have fascinated us. Many of our monsters are a mixture of man and beast (werewolves, Dracula, Moth- man). Likewise, consider our heroes: Spiderman, Batman and Cat Woman. This trend is not a recent Hollywood construction; the “Minotaur” of Greek mythology was a creature that was half man and half bull.
