SPOTTED FALLOW DEER
The spotted fallow deer(Dama dama) is considered to be medium in size. They have a light brown coat with white spots. They are one of the few species of deer that don’t lose their spots a few months after birth. There are some sub species out there that are actually all white and they have dark eyes.(Leucistic ) This isn’t due to Albinism though as some people think. They are very rare to find.
The antlers of these deer are very wide and they can easily measure 20 inches in width. It takes about three years for the males to develop them in this size. Full grown males weigh from 130 to 200 pounds. Full grown females weight from 60 to 90 pounds.
They are extremely fast animals thanks to their powerful legs. Yet their legs are quite short and that makes for a very interesting overall body design.
