The White-Tailed Deer is the adaptable
new world counterpart to the Roe Deer in Europe. Its size and appearance varies according
to the geographical location in which it lives, with larger animals being found at more
northerly latitudes, while further south the smallest kinds of White-Tailed Deer occur.
The White-Tailed Deer is thinly built, and high legged, with a thin slender neck and
gracile head. The tail is long and bushy, and as the name implies has a white underside.
The rump patch is also white.
The coat is a greyish brown colour
during the summer, and in the winter is darker. There are often numerous white patches on
the sides of the face and sometimes along the side of the body. The antlers are complex
and many tined. They grow first outwards and backwards, before turning to point forwards
and more inwards. There can be up to 15 tines, 3 or 4 of which point backwards.
More information about the
