We use our agility and speed to outrun their predators, sprinting up to 48.2km/h (30 mph) and leaping as high as 3m (10 ft)

It was an obvious guess that it is white on the underside of their tail based on their common name, White-tailed deer. Their coat also changes color based on season, reddish-brown in summers & springs. It changes to a grey-brown in the fall and winter.

Males are able to regrow their antlers every year, and their length and branching are determined by genetics, age, and nutrition.
They are gifted with good night vision and color vision during the day due to horizontally slit pupils. Furthermore, they can process visual images more rapidly than humans and are better at detecting motion in low-light conditions.
