These adaptations may differ among individuals as a function of age, sex, physiological state, time of day, season and weather.
Behavior is important because deer tend to voluntarily avoid unpleasant environmental circumstances, such as extreme heat or cold, and wind.
Most animals divide their time between two fundamentally different types of behavior: activity and rest.
All deer species have a unique way of spending their time and energy to maximize their fitness.
Studies of behavioral thermoregulation in ungulates report a reduction in activity and an increase in rest in ruminant species on days when the temperature is high. This suggests that deer are bedding during the day and foraging at night when the temperature is lower. In northeastern desert scrub in Mexico, the activities of white-tail...
