The Persian fallow deer (Dama dama mesopotamica) (gavazn-i zard in Persian) (Yah-mur in modern Hebrew) is a rare ruminant mammal belonging to the family Cervidae. Its taxonomic status is disputed, with some maintaining it as a subspecies of the fallow deer,[1] while others treat it as a separate species, Dama mesopotamica.[2]
