* This height is based on how big they are in comparison to poppies and the altar in the Ruins. May be inaccurate.
** Same as above.
***Which on of them, I don't know. Probably Philippine Mouse Deer.
**** No idea which species/subspecies.

! Important:

Remember, all these are male deer. Females are usually smaller, how much depends on which species we're talking about. To be sure, check Wikipedia or something.

And reindeer, for example, vary between 150 -- 85 cm, and many of the others' heights depends on which subspecies we're talking about, so be sure you're checking that!

I was welcomed to post these

I was welcomed to post these here. This is simply available to help you show where exactly your character is if none of the numbers really 'fit' for them. This consists of 4 layers.
Layer one is there you place your characters silhouette.
Layer two is a WHITE template to overlay and make your character 'pop' out a little more. Delete layer three if you use this.
Layer three is a BLACK template to overlay and make your character 'pop' out a little more. Delete layer two if you use this.
Layer four is the original size chart credited to Apel.

I'm not claiming any credit for this, and okay-ed it with Apel first before posting it here. Just thought it would help others out a little more. Please download to use.
