Red Deer

Red deer are the largest of the UK's resident deer species. 

Throughout the year, the deer will forage in different areas. In Europe, Red Deer is the largest non-domesticated mammal still existing in some countries such as the United Kingdom and Ireland.

During the rut, stags have a distinctive roar-like sound to keep them together and it is this roar that attracts female Red deer. 

DID YOU KNOW? Antlers have up to 16 points, which are made of bone, covered in 'velvet' and can grow 2.5cm a day!
