White-Tailed Deer at Our Nova Scotia Resort
Wednesday, June 20th, 2012
Happy Wildlife Wednesday! While visiting our Nova Scotia resort, you are sure to see many species of wildlife who call Liscombe Lodge their home. One very special animal that can be spotted along our Nova Scotia hiking trails is the white-tailed deer.
A grown white-tailed deer can weigh between 110 kg to 200 kg. During the summer, the white-tailed deer has a reddish fur on its back and sides. The fur on the bottom on the body is white. The colour of the deer’s coat changes in the winter time and the upper fur turns grey.
Newborn deers are born it late spring and can weigh from 2 to 4 kg at birth. White-tailed deer reproduce quickly almost doubling its herd during one year. In most conditions, females tend to breed six to seven months a year and start breeding as young as 12 months. Singleton babies are most common.
Are you planning on experiencing the outdoors at Liscombe Lodge this summer? Keep you’re cameras close as its very possible to spot a white-tailed deer along our Nova Scotia hiking trails. Feel free to send in your adventure pictures to us through our Facebook page, we’d love to see them!
