Adorable Fallow fawn born at Woodlands

An adorable Fallow Deer Fawn was born at Woodlands Family Theme Park located near Dartmouth.

The adorable Fallow Fawn is only a week old and she is very shy, hiding in tall grass when the mother walks around the paddock.

The Zoo-Farm Keeper at Woodlands Zoo-Farm said ‘’We started with three females a few months ago so it’s very exciting to add to the family with this little cutie. We are expecting the family to grow more as we are expecting more little fawns soon.’’

The Fallow Deer is native to Western Eurasia but has also been introduced in North America and Australia plus fun fact, the fallow is the only British deer with palmate antlers.

The Fallow deer love getting treats every so often like carrots and apples apart from their main diet of ground vegetation.

Guests can visit the new Fallow Deer family at Woodlands Zoo-Farm. The fawn joins lots of new arrivals to the Zoo-Farm including Domino & Peaches our Miniature Shetland Foals, a baby alpaca and lots of adorable baby goats. Make sure you keep an eye on the Woodlands Facebook Page for more news and photos on the upcoming fawns and other new arrivals in the park.
