White-tailed deer - North America - Temperate Forest

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus)
Like many other temperate forest mammals, white-tailed deer help ensure their babies are well fed by bearing young when food is abundant. Mating occurs in the fall. Every spring, when buds, twigs, and shrubs have sprouted, the females—called does—give birth to one or two fawns.
