Hi Friends,

After viewing 198 trail cam videos, I collected the best to share. As of now, there has been a deer family hanging out in the back of the woods. You will notice that there is a deer on the trail cam that has one horn. I  believe that is how the unicorn myth got started.

I have been checking the web and found out that β€˜unicorn’ deer are rare in the wild and that they are called piebald fawns, a form of a genetic mutation. Here is a news segment about these adorable deer, click here.

Also, on the trail cam video one deer has a slight eye condition. One of the eyes is smaller than the other…I believe that is also a genetic mutation.

Plus, I recently learned that deer can smell humans about 1/4 mile away! They have 297 olfactory receptors (nerve cells inside the nose) that make their sense of smell extra sensitive. 

Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Lots of Love,

Debra Roinestad
