Discover
History of the deer in Flor del Lago
The deer have been introduced by Ernesto Wagner in the fifties. He got the first deer from Argentina and put them into a fenced area. As they got used to the climate and vegetation quickly, they reproduced extremely well. So after only 3 years they were set free and have spread all over the farm. After that, fallow deer were introduced as well. Since a few years there is also wild boar. These extremely sturdy animals crossed over the Andes from Argentina and now populate the area.

The indigenous animals such as pudu (worlds smallest deer), foxes, skunks, rabbits, hare and the beautiful puma share their habitat with these introduced species.

In March there is the rutting season, time for the deer to mate. The spectacular way the male stags try to get the females attention in order to get a big herd for their own, is just magnificent and worthwhile watching. Even non-hunters will enjoy it!
