The antler ferine split from its ancestor the taiga ferine. It has grown twice as tall as its ancestors and can now grow many sub-branches on its main branches. Each sub-branch grows even smaller branches with purple needles on them to collect sunlight Like its ancestor it will before dormant in the winter time. Thus at the end of fall the branches will fall off the trunk of the tree and a protective bark will grow over the top of the tree until the end of winter. When spring comes the new branches will rapidly grow using the energy they stored up from last fall. Once fully grown they will produce an orange flower. This will get pollinated and then turn into small bright orange berries which the local fauna can eat and disperse the seeds in their dung.
