Capreolus capreolus

The roe deer is the smallest deer in the Iberian peninsula. It has black eyes, a black nose and large ears. It is known as “the elf of the forest” because its hindquarters are larger than its forequarters, and this causes it to run with a jumping motion. Its natural environment is the Mediterranean forests, where it feeds on shoots and grasses. It is a solitary animal, and it is rare to see more than three in a group.
