The fallow deer closely resembles a spotted deer. Its coat also bears patches of white, however its horns are significantly larger than other deer. Fallow deer are usually found in Europe. They live for around 14 to 16 years.

Despite the fact that fallow deer are not found in the wild in Pakistan, several zoos are breeding the creatures in captivity.
