Description: Reddish in summer, grayish in winter. White-tailed Deer are plant-eaters which have proliferated in the Pine Barrens (as elsewhere in the country) due to the fragmentation of forests, which creates more edible plants of the forest edge than does a continuous, mature forest.

Habitat: Common throughout the Pine Barrens.

Height: 3 - 4 feet at shoulder
