Caption: Red deer stag (Cervus elaphus) feeding on heather at the base of a rocky cliff, in deep snow in November. The red deer is the UK's largest native land animal, with the male (stag) standing nearly two metres tall. The red deer is a herbivorous ruminant, grazing on vegetation. This stag is in Assynt, in the Sutherland region of Scotland. This area is part of the North West Highlands Geopark, designated by UNESCO in 2004. Geoparks are designated for the scientific importance of their geological features.
