Serengeti-Park animals: Fallow deer

It is noticeable that fallow deer have white spots almost all year round. They grow dense warm fur during the winter time. Their offsprings (fawn) are usually born in May or June. Since the calves are separated from the mother in the first few weeks, and she only visits them for suckling, the little ones have to be well camouflaged in the forest or in a meadow from predators, such as lynxes and wolves.
