Cryptorchidism is a condition in male mammals in which one or both testes do not descend into the scrotum or form normally. The reduced level of testosterone prevents a normal antler cycle. Antlers grow in bizarre shapes, they do not harden, velvet remains year-round, and the antlers go on growing for the life of the deer without being shed. Whether born that way or through suffering an injury, the bizarre buck shown here no doubt had a lack of or imbalance in hormones. Found in Montgomery County, Maryland, the skull belongs to Tinker Johnson, a taxidermist in Poolesville.
