Key Deer

Brian and I stopped in Big Pine Key and I was delighted to see this adorable little deer come up to us. He was clearly looking for a handout because when we offered none, he walked away.

Key Deer, as the name suggests, make their home only in the Florida Keys. They are small and seem used to people because they are not shy–at least this one wasn’t.

  1. Lovely. I love the story that goes with it. It’s sort of sad that animals become tame because they rely on people… the very ones who could hurt them should things turn the other way.
    Lovely pic. 🙂
