Pildil annab hästi võrrelda äärmiste isenditel (soku ja kitse) sabapeeglite erinevat kuju. Mõne aja möödudes, kui isased oma uhkuse maha poetanud ehk suguliseks tuvastamiseks jääbki osundatu ainsamaks võimaluseks.

In the photo you can compare the different shapes of the rear mirrors of the individuals (a roe buck and a doe). After some time when all the males have dropped their antlers  the shape of the mirror remains the only way to distinguish the genders from a distance.
