Animals of Schneeberg


Feral animals


Hinds and stags

These are the animals that we see most often because they live in the forests of Schneeberg.

We can also be heard even when Brame. In early fall, deep and hoarse cries echoed through the forest. The slab is the word that means both the cry of the deer and the rut. These cries signal the presence of male to female.



In March, the deer loses its antlers. In early spring, he rebuilt its wood, which are covered with velvet (skin nourishing). These will be finished in July and stripped of velvet, for the period of the slab, due to rubbing against trees.

It is possible to recover the Woods on a walk or hike through the forest.
