Deer scats in pellet form. This is the summer form. The scats hold their shape well due to the moisture content. If the diet included more moist or succulent plants, the scats would be looser, or would stick together more. These are the typical form of scats seen.

The common form of deer scat is a pellet with a dimple on one end and a point on the opposite end. These pellets are found in piles near feeding areas. The scat in this picture is from a black-tailed deer. Photo taken at Albee Creek Campground, Humboldt Redwoods State Park, California.
