During the winter, they generally keep to coniferous forests that can shield them from harsh weather conditions. White-tailed deer are herbivores, and their diet consists of a variety of leaves, twigs, fruits and nuts, grass, corn, alfalfa, and even lichens and other fungi.
Cool fact: deer can leap as high as three meters and as far as nine meters in a single bound.
