Deer are herbivores, means they eat plants.
A group of deer is called a herd.
A male deer is a buck.
A female deer is a doe.
Bucks grow antlers every year which fall off in winter.
Deer can run up to 30 miles per hour to escape a predator.
There are many different breeds of deer.
Deer have great hearing and a very good sense of smell but their eyesight is quite poor.
A baby deer is called a fawn.
They are very good jumpers. Some can jump 30 feet, almost the length of a school bus.
They have two hooves on each foot which is a hard covering that works a bit like a sturdy shoe to protect their feet.
