great spotting wow very unusual
Thanks to all of you.. JuliusSchmitz-Justen.. This photo was taken on a walk at on of the HUNTING CASTLES in Saxony.. Not sure about the ID?!?! FALLOW or RED???
Wow, wonderful sighting!
This is a tricky one, because you can't see what the natural coat is! I want to agree with Julius that this a fallow deer, the antlers confused me, but I have seen photos with antlers like this. Also the build looks more like a fallow. But you can get white red deer! They're leucistic deer, a year or so ago one was spotted here in the UK and someone caught it on camera! They are so cool looking. But it's highly rare in red deer, and as Julius said, common in fallows! Haha, to conclude this long rambly comment, I think it's a fallow deer!
PS: I'm not sure if there're any red deers with this color anomalie. It's no albino as you can see on his eyes. Although the white color is quite common within the Fallow deers.
Oh you've been to germany :D. In which reserve did you find this deer?
Thanks.. I don't think he would survive in the wild very long! This photo was taken in a reseve..
That last picture is great! Never seen one of these until now. :)
Thanks.. I have never seen a white deer before..
Very funny and awesome!
