We have a melanistic doe in our neighborhood, born last year.

She seems to be fitting in with all of the others and doing ok.

My wife has taken to calling her Cocoa, which is accurate as she chocolate colored.

Thought others might enjoy seeing her.

Very cool looking deer. Used to see them a bunch growing up in Hays Co, especially in the Mountain City area.

I've seen two, one in Kendall county and one in Comal

They are also common in north Bexar county around Hollywood park and hill country village

They are neat
