Deer in the Wild

Deer are amazing cute animals. The scientific name for a deer is Cervidae. Deer who were just born and still growing are called a fawn. A female deer is called a doe, and a male deer is called a buck. Deer can live up to 10 years in the woods and 20 years in captivity. A pack of deer is called a herd and up to 30 deer can be members of the herd. Deer usually eat leaves from trees and grass. Deer are most active during the night and early morning.   There are many species of deer, and the most seen is the white tail deer. Here’s a fun fact about the white tailed deer. He/she are the most shy and nervous of all the deer species. During mating season, a male may catch a doe’s attention by using its antlers in a fight. The average deer can run up to 30 miles per hour. Deer are very interesting animals, and I hope you learned a lot about them.
