Remember the golden deer described in the Hindu epic Ramayana! Well, as described in Ramayana, the deer , that allured Goddess Sita in the forest and was chased by Lord Rama, was a demon in disguise. 

Normally, a deer’s coat looks reddish-brown during summer and dull grayish-brown in winter. The white spots on them appear at different ages.
