The fallow deer (Dama dama) is a species of deer native to Europe, but has been introduced to many other countries around the world. It is a medium-sized deer, with a distinctive coat color that can range from reddish-brown in summer to grayish-brown in winter. The males have palmate antlers.
Fallow deer are known for their agility and are capable of jumping over obstacles and escaping predators. They are herbivores and feed on a variety of vegetation, including leaves, shoots, and grasses.
These deer are social animals and are known to form herds. They are also known for their vocalizations, including barks, grunts, and whistles, which they use to communicate with other members of their species.
Fallow deer are widely distributed and are considered to be a game species, with populations managed for hunting in many countries. They are also kept in parks and estates as ornamental animals. Conservation efforts are underway in some areas to protect their habitats and preserve their populations.
