Do deer eat begonias?

Answer

According to KW Schumer from SFGate, deer are not attracted to begonias, thus reducing the risk of consumption. White-tailed deer are a widespread ungulate native to North America, Central America and South America. The species has an introduced presence in New Zealand and some parts of Europe.

White-tailed deer vary in size, with specimens becoming larger the farther they are from the equator. North American stags can reach 300 pounds or more, while North American females can approach 200 pounds. The specialized stomach of the white-tailed deer allows it to eat an expansive array of plants and plant materials. White-tailed deer are overpopulated in parts of North America due to a pronounced decrease or absence of natural predators.
