Stags - 3 Interesting Facts

If you have ever visited the Kingshouse Hotel in Glencoe you may have had the opportunity to see one of these fine beasts close up but mostly we just admire these majestic, beautiful creatures from a distance. I was fascinated to find out a little bit more about these elegant stags. 1. Antler Regeneration: Stags have the incredible ability to regrow their antlers each year. These bony structures can grow up to an inch per day, making them one of the fastest-growing tissues in the animal kingdom. 2. Social Behaviour: Stags are not solitary creatures but often live in groups. These groups, known as "herds," are typically led by a dominant male, while younger males form bachelor groups. Their social dynamics are quite complex. 3. Incredible Sense of Smell: Stags have an exceptional sense of smell, which they use for communication, finding food, and detecting potential predators. Their noses are so sensitive that they can detect scents from miles away. Shop our range of artist designed, UK made stag gifts.
