``Mitsos`` and his family!

Our male deer Mitsos, was born in the Farma of Rhodes in 2012. Unfortunately a couple of days after his birth, his mother died so we took care of him, by feeding him milk from a baby bottle.

Mitsos is a very friendly animal but during August and January he becomes a little hostile because of the reproduction period. He listens when people call out his name and can also eat corn and vegetables from people’s hands.

More about
the Fallow Deers

The fallow deer (a.k.a. Dama Dama) is a ruminant mammal animal belonging to the deer family. Fallow deer is native to west Eurasia but nowadays it can be found all over the world. Regarding their appearance there are exist four main variations, but there also some other minors.

The most common variety is the familiar tan and fawn coloring with white spots on the flanks of their body. The menil variety has paler coat but keeps the white spots.

The melanistic or black variety is entirely black without any white coloring. Fallow deers graze grass, but they also eat shrubs from the trees especially during the autumn and winter. Groups of adult males and females, usually with their youngs, remain apart for most of the year in large woodlands, and they come together only for breeding.

The deers freely mix in large herds throughout the year in open, agricultural environments. After mating, the female gives birth to a single fawn in June or July after a gestation of 229 days. Bucks usually live for 8 – 10 years although they can live up to 16 years.

During your visit to the deers, you may notice that some of them have their ears damaged. This is due to the large fire that broke out on August 2021 in Rhodes island. More about this fire you can find here.
