- Fallow deer have spotted coats even as adults. The spots of some Fallow Deer fade in the winter and darken in the summer. This may be for more effective camouflage
- Only males grow antlers. They are covered in a substance called “velvet” which protects the veins that supply blood to the antlers. They drop their antlers in the spring and grow a new pair in the summer, and may reach 3 feet long. Antlers get larger each year until the male is sexually mature.
- Fallow deer can have numerous colorations. They may be brown, red, cream colored, and even white.
