White Wednesday-White Deer

White Deer

While there is an abundance of the normal brown whitetail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) to be seen, we also have something a little unique; white deer. This coloration is not very common and is often confused with the albino. This deer will have white fur all year round, but will not have the pink eyes, nose, and hoofs of a true albino. They are white due to a recessive gene.
