|EUROPEAN ROE DEER|
The European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), also known as the western roe deer, chevreuil, or simply roe deer, is a Eurasian species of deer. The male of the species is sometimes referred to as a roebuck. The roe deer is relatively small, reddish and grey-brown, and well-adapted to cold environments.
The species is widespread in Europe, from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia and from Britain to the Caucasus. It is distinct from the somewhat larger Siberian roe deer.
The roe deer is a relatively small deer, with a body length of 95ג€“135 cm (3.1ג€“4.4 ft), a shoulder height of 65ג€“75 cm (2.1ג€“2.5 ft), and a weight of 15ג€“35 kg (33ג€“77 lb).
It has rather short, erect antlers and a reddish body with a grey face. Its hide is golden red in summer, darkening to brown or even black in winter, with lighter undersides and a white rump patch; the tail is very short (2ג€“3 cm or 0.8ג€“1.2 in), and barely visible. Only the males have antlers.
