Fawn Search

   A fawn is a baby deer, distinguished from adults by a white spotted coat. Newborn fawns are almost scentless, saving them from being noticed by predators. Fawns instinctively play, by quickly running away from their mother and back again, sometimes bucking and zigzagging. This gives them practice for eluding predators.
