The deer is recognisable by its mighty antlers, which usually shed every year. The female deer, known as a hind, has no horns. Bot can be seen often in our forests, but they are particularly interesting in the autumn, when we can listen to their typical mating calls known as rutting.
Foxes are quite well-represented in Slovenia, so they can often be seen in the forests of Kočevsko. You will find it hard to see them during the day, but this is why a random encounter will bring you great joy. The fox is a nocturnal animal, and it hunts its prey during the night as well. It is a distinct omnivore, so its diet consists of mushrooms and fruits, grasshoppers, frogs, as well as larger animals such as pheasants or rabbits.
