The Roe Deer (Capreolus capreolus, Linnaeus, 1758) is an ungulate widespread in Europe and Asia.
It is very fast and lives on plateaus and mountains, although it was originally found mainly in the plains. The roe deer is a small cervid, 90-130 cm long, 55-77 cm high at the shoulder. It weighs between 10 and 35 kg.
It is of a color between red and brown with a white belly and a gray muzzle; the coat is fawn in summer. The male has small antlers of bone tissue, generally with three tips on each side in adults; these fall every year, from October to December, and grow again at the end of winter.
The diet consists of various grasses, bark, leaves, shoots of deciduous trees, conifers and fruits.
In the past, the roe deer was considered a solitary animal, although today it is known that it has a complex and articulated social behavior. In fact, while the males lead a solitary existence for most of the year (also because territorial disputes begin between them already at the end of winter), the females often live gathered in herds, made up of 3-7 individuals, directed by a dominant female. In such packs, hierarchies and social relationships are well defined and structured.
The mating period goes from mid-July to the end of August; courtship consists of a series of pursuits of the female by the male.
Gestation lasts approximately nine and a half months. In the period from late spring to early summer the females give birth, normally 1 or 2 young, rarely three, with the characteristic thickly spotted brown coat. Very often the females leave the cub hidden in the tall grass, while they wander nearby in search of food.
With the arrival of autumn, the males also join the herds of females and often occupy a place at the bottom of the hierarchy. It can reach an age of 18 years.
The roe deer is a shy and shy animal; it is prey to wolves, bears and its young lynxes, foxes, wild cats, eagles, eagle owls, martens, jackals and wild boars.
