"Canine" is for dog, "Porcine" for pig, "Equine" for horse. Is there an adjective for deer-like?
"Deerlike" is a dictionary word (which also happens to be an adjective):
(in British English)
- resembling a deer
However, cervine appears to be used more frequently than deerlike:
You could also use:
Ungulates (pronounced /ˈʌŋɡjəleɪts/ UNG-gyə-layts) are members of a diverse clade of primarily large mammals with hooves.
The term means, roughly, "being hoofed" or "hoofed animal".
There are two types of ungulates:
- Odd-toed ungulates such as horses, rhinoceroses and tapirs.
- Even-toed ungulates such as cattle, pigs, giraffes, camels, sheep, deer, and hippopotamuses.
Hence, "deerlike" mammals can also be referred to as "even-toed ungulates".
Note that this is a general term and can apply to other hoofed mammals too..
