Fallow Deer

Took another trip to Logan and a visit to Ruby’s Petting Zoo (https://www.facebook.com/rubyspettingzoo/) to take photos of the Fallow Deer.  

Fallow Deer are the sole survivors of the Megacerines, a diverse deer lineage abundant during the Ice Age (https://www.britannica.com/animal/fallow-deer#ref1022133).  

Fallow Deer are medium size with light brown coats and white spots. A subspecies are all white with dark eyes.   The males  weigh between 130 to 200 pounds and have  broad flattened antlers.  The females weigh between 60 to 90 pounds.  Both the males and females have powerful legs and are very fast runners.   Green grass is their favorite food.  For more information read http://www.deerworlds.com/fallow-deer/.
