Talk:White deer

Move to "Hinds"? As this is obviously a type of animal. -- Ederchil 02:55, 5 June 2008 (EDT)

  • I agree, didnt think of that, good catch.--Quidon88 16:22, 5 June 2008 (EDT)
"Hinds" is not a type of animals, a "hind" is a female (red) deer. What's special about the deer encountered in Mirkwood is that they are white (seemingly inspired by the white deer of Celtic and Irish mythologies).--Morgan 21:03, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
