Fallow Deer

Fallow deDamwilder were driven from Central Europe during the last Ice Age. They re-established themselves in their former habitat in Central Europe at the time of the great migration back from Asia Minor via England. Areas with fallow deer exist today in many parts of Germany. Thanks to their great ability to adapt and their low susceptibility to illnesses they continues to proliferate. Fallow deer do little damage to the forest. They reacts little to disturbances, are active by day and live sociably. Fallow deer, which occur in large groups, are genuine members of the deer family.

At present there are 3 of these animals in the zoo. At the compound there are information boards above the shedding rods und ‘dead hedge’. The fallow deer share their 2,200m² enclosure with moufflon.
