The fallow deer is at home in mixed and deciduous forests, in the lowlands and in the low mountain ranges. After the Ice Age destroyed it in Europe or pushed it south, it was successfully naturalized again in antiquity. The typical feature is the shovel that forms above the middle rung of the deer from the age of 5 years. The poles are shed each year after winter and rebuilt and enlarged over the summer. Also this year there was a lot of offspring among the fallow deer in the Steinwasen Park.
