The Red Deer (S. Erais Cernin sgl. Aras Carnen N.Brerais sg. Breras), commonly called hart in Eriador, was one of the largest deer species. The Red Deer inhabited most of the Westlands, Rhovanion, Rhûn and parts of Khand and even Mordor. It also inhabited the hilly regions between Umbar and Harondor in northwestern Haradwaith, being the only species of deer to inhabit the Harad. In many parts of Middle-Earth the meat from Red Deer was widely used as a food source.
