Fawn "In Spots"


The Mule Deer Fawn is born with a natural camouflage pattern of white spotted browns. The coloration allows it to lie hidden, curled up and motionless in the shadows of the forest.

At this early age, the fawn is completely defenseless except for this ability to hide. It relies completely on protection by its mother and other deer in the herd from all threatening predators.

Big Mule-Like Ears


The Mule Deer is named for its big mule-like ears...and this photo is a perfect illustration of why it got this name.

The big ears are excellent for hearing and are also "signalling devices" for other deers, (and humans who know what to look for). This deer is curious and holds her ears forward as she listens. When angry, the ears are held back along the sides of the head.

Yosemite Deer Buck In Snow


This big buck is in control, and prepared to repel all challengers. He is acutely aware of his surroundings and is listening "to his front" with one ear pointed in that direction as he listens behind him with the other.

Only a desperate mountain lion would dare challenge him, and would not likely survive the encounter uninjured.

He is the unquestionable king of the forest!

Mule Deer Mother And Fawn


The fawn is older now and has lost its' spots. No longer able to rely on its camouflage to help it hide, it is still needs its mother for protection.

Larger and stronger, the fawn is now able to run from some enemies, but is prime prey for both the coyote and mountain lion. The deer will normally live in groups with mothers, babies and at least one big male. This helps all remain safer from attack.

Mule Deer Males In "Velvet"


The male mule deer loses his old antlers and re-grows new ones every season. While the new antlers are developing and hardening, they are covered by what, (because of its soft and fuzzy appearance), is referred to as "velvet" .

When his antlers are ready, the buck will rub against trees shrubs and other surfaces until the "velvet" is shed, exposing the sharp new set.

The old antlers that have been shed fall to the forest ground, where they provide a rich source of calcium for the little gnawing forest creatures!
