All About Baby Deer

Baby deers, also known as fawns, are some of the most adorable creatures in the animal kingdom.

However, there is much more to these young creatures than just their appearance.

They are born with a soft and spotted coat, typically reddish-brown with  white spots. This unique coat provides excellent camouflage in their  surroundings

Physical Appearance

They are known for their hiding and stillness instincts, which help keep them safe from predators.


They have keen senses, particularly their sense of smell and hearing. Their large eyes provide excellent vision, which allows them to avoid predators and navigate their environment.


Weight And Size

At birth, a baby deer weighs between 5-12 pounds and multiplies to reach  a weight of 60-100 pounds within their first year of life.

They communicate with their mothers and other herd members through vocalizations, body language, and scent marking.


An important milestone is the weaning process, where the fawn  gradually begins to rely less on its mother’s milk and begins to forage  for food on its own.


Baby deer are exclusively lactose-fed by their mothers until they eat solid food. Their diet includes various vegetation, including leaves, twigs, and buds.


They are social creatures that form strong bonds with their mothers and, later on, with other members of their herd.

Social Behavior

They are known for taking frequent naps throughout the day, which is essential for their growth and development.
