Red deer (Cervus elaphus) spend late summer and autumn preparing for winter by storing up fat reserves that represent up to 30% of their weight. The winter offers little to eat, and animals have to expend a lot of energy to forage in the snow. When spring arrives food becomes plentiful again, and their keen sense of smell enables deer to choose plants that are good for them and avoid those that aren’t.
