In Great Britain
Great Britain is home to six wild deer species (see below), two of which are native to the UK; Red and Roe - the rest have formed wild populations and have been introduced through various ways, but the most common example is from farm and park escapees. You will find wild deer across the UK in a wide variety of habitats including, forestry, woodland, agricultural field margins, marshes and increasingly urban fringes. Some habitats will have more than one deer species, in some cases you can find up to five of the six living in that area. Each deer shares characteristics with the other members of the same species e.g. anatomy of feet; more interestingly is the differences in behaviour, antlers, pelage, communication, feeding habits etc.
