A Roe Deer is a species of deer. Another name for Roe Deer is (European) roe deer. A male Roe Deer is called a buck, stag or hart; a female is called a doe, hind or, in some older texts, a roe; and the young animals are fawns.

Each year bucks grow new antlers on their skulls to replace the ones they lost over the previous year.

An adult Roe Deer weighs around 50-100 pounds (23-45kg). Males are usually larger than females.

A Roe Deer will eat plants such as grasses and leaves but sometimes they can be harmful to crops so it's important not to let them near your garden if you don want to see them there! Roe Deer can be found throughout Europe and Asia.

Adult Roe Deer are between 40-70 inches (100-170cm) long, not including the tail which is 10-16 inches (25-40cm) long. The Roe Deer has a face that looks like a cat's with whiskers and its nose is black. It also has short, pointed ears that stand upright and large eyes that help it see at night and in the dark forests it lives in. There are several subspecies of Roe Deer: European Roe, Siberian Roe and Capreolus Pygargus .
