European roe deer (Capreolus capreolus), also known as western roe deer, or simply roe deer, are a Eurasian species of deer. The male of the species is sometimes referred to as a roebuck. Roe deer are relatively small, reddish, and grey-brown, and well-adapted to cold environments. The species is widespread in Europe from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia and from Britain to the Caucasus. They are smaller and distinct from the somewhat larger Siberian roe deer.
