I have never seen the European deer. The roe deer look not too different from our white-tail deer. The white-tails may be a bit larger–and with much longer tails. This looks like a nice walk. Isn’t it good to have weather that is more like spring!
The European Roe deer is a small deer species. Adults reach a head-body length of 1 to 1.4 m and a weight of 15 to 35 kg. Females weigh 10 to 15 % less than males. They are very shy, very elegant – and very fond of tulips …
Fond of tulips! That makes them VERY like whitetails. I cannot plant tulips in my yard unless I want to put a very big fence around them. (I have lots of narcissus, which seems to be the only flower deer have no taste for) 🙂
Ha – same here; the narcissus are left alone 😏
