The roe deer

Index card


The mosaic of pasture and forest fields where we pass is an ideal habitat for roe deer.
It basically feeds on leaves of shrubs and small trees, as well as berries and tender shoots, and lives practically all the time in the woods, leaving the field open on occasions.
It has twilight habits, so if we want to observe it, we will have to do it as the first thing in the day or late in the afternoon before it becomes dark.
Males have small horns of three tips that change every year at the beginning of winter and finish them developing when spring begins. Another feature is the color change in the coat, reddish in summer and becoming grayish in winter.
Attention: If you find a baby lying in a field, do not touch it. The mother, feeling your smell impregnated, could leave her.
