Purana and Itihasa (epic history)
Mṛgas (मृगस्).—(deer) All the animals originated from Kaśyapaprajāpati. Kaśyapaprajāpati, son of Marīci, married the eight daughters of Dakṣa named Tāmrā etc. From Tāmrā were born birds. Krodhavaśā gave birth to ten girls named Mṛgī, Mṛgamandā, Harī, Bhadramadā, Mātaṅgī, Śārdūlī, Śvetā, Surabhi, Surasā and Kadrū. Mṛgas (deer) are the children of Mṛgī.
