Information : Species : Deer Species Overview
 

Species

Of the six free living species of deer in great Britain only the Red deer and Roe deer are truly native to this country and even their populations have, over the years, been heavily subsidised by introductions from elsewhere. All the other British species are completely exotic, with the Fallow deer almost certainly brought to this country by the Normans and three Asiatic species, Reeve's Muntjac, Chinese Water deer and Sika deer, originally introduced towards the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.
