During your trip to Omega Park you will see this small, easy to recognise, deer. It is easily reconisable as it always has a spotted coat. Nevertheless, it can also have a black coat without spots. The male’s antlers are flat instead of pointy.
This species is native to the Eastern Mediterranean and North Africa but has been established throughout the Mediterranean since ancient times.
The classic habitat of the fallow deer is the open hardwood forest. The males are solitary and only mix with females during the mating season, which occurs in October and November. The gestation period lasts eight months. The antlers reach their developmental peak in September and fall in May.
