Why do white tail deer have white tails?
White-tailed deer have white undersides on their tail so when they are alarmed or in danger their tail is held up as they run. The white patch on the tail signals other deer like a flag that there is danger in that area. When a large herd of deer move during the day they will be in sight of each other, yet spread out. As night falls the deer will form into single file, nose to tail and move together by following the white tail that is in front of them.

Will an axis deer and a white tail deer mate?
They might. However, the breeding season for Axis (Chittal) deer and White-tail deer are opposite, with Axis deer rutting from May to August and White-tail from October to December. Though a rutting Axis deer may try to mate with a not-in-season white-tail doe, or vice versa, the chance of producing offspring may be nil. Axis deer are actually more closely related to the American Elk than White-tailed Deer, and offspring, though not recorded, may not be genetically viable.
