Playtime is over and the little fawns are hungry.
They take turns butting and suckling upon their mothers teat.
of them push and shove at each other for the hindmost pair of teats that produce the most milk.
Mom knows there are other things besides milk to satisfy their hunger.
She shows them how to scratch the soil with their hoof to get to the tender shoots.
I have to go potty!
Mama helps out...by stimulating the fawn with her tongue to defecate and urinate until they are about 3 weeks old almost every time they're fed.
What's that? I think I hear something....
We best go into the brush now... We shall be safe.
