The white and brown-dotted fur of the fawns turns out to be a splendid camouflage colouring. Often a fawn lying quietly in the grass remains completely unnoticed by people passing by. When the danger has passed the doe returns quietly and cautiously to the same place again. Already at a couple of months the dot pattern becomes duller and the fawns turn reddish-brown-coloured.
