Animals living in the Artificial/Terrestrial habitat

Before the Earth was manipulated by the hand of man. The native species of the region developed and diversified along typical avenues over time. When man gained the ability to efficiently affect his environment things began to change.

Manipulation of large sections of native habitat for agricultural use and other purposes forced fauna into retreat. Some were unable to adapt and remain successful with their inherent traits, others did adapt to live alongside ongoing developments. All areas have been effected to some degree even if only subtly.There are several reports of these adaptation on record. One of these reports is in reference to the common White Tail Deer. There is a herd of all albino deer that roam in the area of Seneca Falls, NY.

Albino animals are easily spotted in their surrounding habitat and are usually dispatched by a predator of some kind before the genetic markers they carry can be passed on to future generations. This corrects the default that would make it hard to hide in a natural environment from affecting the herd.

This particular herd was trapped within the confines of a fenced off military base where the soldiers were permitted to hunt. There evolved a kind of agreement among these hunters to not shoot the albino deer they could spot easily and therefor be at a disadvantage. Only the natural deer were harvested and the remainder are all albino.
