Male Fallow Deer (aka Buck/Stag

Female Fallow Deer (aka Doe)

Prized as an ornamental species for many years, the fallow deer (Dama dama) displays a variety of coat colours in the UK, ranging from red, brown and black, and even pure white coats. A black line runs along the back to the tail, and there are often white spots on the back during summer. The coat becomes darker and thicker in winter, and these white spots become more faint. Males have impressive antlers that can measure up to 70 centimetres in height. Calves are born with a coat similar to the summer coat of the adult.
