    Anyone seen this before in Fallow deer, deer or any other animal for that matter?

    Dear all

    I shot a Fallow doe on tuesday night and found these 'orrible looking cist type affairs on the placenta.

    Anyone seen this before/know what it is?

    They're placental cotyledons, perfectly normal.
    Come and visit us for a Blaser or Mauser fitting, get the right rifle for your needs.

    If memory serves, placentome is the correct term for entire structure, a combination of the caruncle and cotyledon. All ruminants have them, deer have fewer but larger ones.

    Ah bugger!

    Thought it would take someone ages to come up with the answer.

    Well done to HME and Wildfowler. Top marks!

    I didn't know what it was and had never seen it before. You are obviously correct. Very informed and well done.

    “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama
