The Bronx Zoo Welcomes Four Pere David's Deer Fawns
The herd of Pere David's deer at the Wildlife Conservation Society's Bronx Zoo just got a little larger as seen in these photos released on April 21, 2017. The four fawns, two males, and two females are all born to different mothers. A male and a female were born on April 7, while the other two deer arrived on April 15. All are now on exhibit with the herd. The Pere David's deer might seem somewhat unassuming, but the species has some adaptations unlike any other deer. They have long tails, branch-like antlers, and splayed hooves that would indicate that they are adapted to live in a marsh-like environment, but no one knows for sure how the species evolved or the environment it once lived in the wild.
