There are adorable baby deer everywhere in Colorado right now. It's hard not to stop and take in the innocence and dark eyes of a spotted fawn. Those white spots are still so magical, certainly, it has to do with the 1942 movie Bambi.

The deer we have here in Colorado are called mule deer. Sometimes confused with whitetail deer which reside east of the Rocky Mountains. Mule deer received their name because of their ears, which resemble those of a mule. The female most commonly gives birth to twins, 2 fawns. However, on rare occasions, they can have triplets.

A resident of Parker, Colorado was quick to grab her camera when she saw not one, not two, but three nursing fawns.

When I watch this video I have memories of nursing twin human babies. I can't imagine triplets. Is it just me or does she look completely annoyed?

A female deer, called a Doe, "commonly produces twins, with occasional singletons and rare triplets. Fawns are typically weaned by eight to ten weeks of age and become reproductively mature as yearlings" according to Colorado Encyclopedia. Fawns usually lose their spots by about 4 months of age.

Colorado has somewhere around 500,000 mule deer and several websites say Colorado is regarded as "the nation's top mule deer destination".
