en Roe deer
The roe deer is a widespread species in Europe, from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia, from Britain to the Caucasus, and east to northern Iran and Iraq. It is primarily crepuscular, very quick and graceful, and lives in woods, although it may venture into grasslands and sparse forests. It feeds mainly on grass, leaves, berries, and young shoots.
The roe deer is relatively small, reddish and grey-brown, and well-adapted to cold environments. It attains a maximum lifespan (in the wild) of 10 years. When alarmed, it will bark a sound much like a dog and flash out its white rump patch. Rump patches differ between the sexes, with the white rump patches heart-shaped on females and kidney-shaped on males. (source: Wikipedia)
