(Capreolus capreolus)

6. The Roe Deer

The roe is the smallest of the three well known species of deer found in Britain, it being only about twenty-four inches in height at the shoulder. It is a shy, retiring animal sheltering in woods and thickets in many parts of the country, where it may be found in family parties consisting of a buck, doe and their offspring. The male has small, sharp pointed antlers. The female often has two young at a time.
