White-tailed deer

Odocoileus virginianus

Description:

White-tails have reddish-brown coats in summer which fade to a duller grayish-brown in winter. Male deer, called bucks, are easily recognizable in the summer and fall by their prominent set of antlers, which are grown annually and fall off in the winter. Only the bucks grow antlers, which bear a number of tines, or sharp points.

Habitat:

Found in a state park in a field that is covered with woods around.
