Information on 'Introducing Baby Deer'
( Tourist spots in nara city )

The information on Nara's deer this time is about "Introducing baby deer".

[ Various deer ]


Deer were leisurely at Nara Park today as well.


Deer was also in the approach of Kasuga Taisei shrine.


I saw such deer for the first time.
I was not waiting for this moment to take this picture.
Both deers suddenly stood up when trying to shoot two walking side by side.
This situation ended in a few seconds.
[ Baby Deer ]
There are many tourists who enjoy tourist spots of historical things in Nara.
There are also many tourists who enjoy deer in Nara.
The deer in Nara are wild.
Therefore, the deer of Nara are not usually protected inside the Rokuen(Deer protection facility).
It is when they are injured that they are protected.
May and June are the times when many baby deer is born.
Also, the mother deer of the period before and after childbirth is protected because its temper is rough.
Born baby deer is also protected in the Rokuen.
For this reason, baby deer usually can not be seen.
As a matter of course it is impossible to grasp and protect all mothers because they are wild, so there are mothers who give birth outside the Rokuen.
Sometimes it seems that the baby deer is seen.
However, I have never seen such a baby deer.
[ Introducing Baby Deer ]
You can see baby deer that you can not see easily in the next month.
