White-Tailed Deer

Odocoileus virginianus

Don’t confuse it with Bambi…

  • Fawns are born with a reddish brown coat that is spotted in white.
  • This allows it to camouflage in the first weeks of life, during which the doe leaves to feed.
  • It runs up to 60 km/h. It makes leaps 9 meters in length and 2.5 meters in height.
