They develop rapidly, opening their eyes around 10 days old. In about 3 weeks, they're independent enough to explore, and by 6-8 weeks, they're weaned and ready to live on their own.
They imprint on the first moving object they see, often their mother, and follow her for protection.
They are born with white spots that help camouflage them in tall grass. They are scentless for the first few weeks to avoid detection by predators.
