Elk | Wapiti

Group of illustrated side elevation drawings of the Elk (Wapiti)

Elk (Cervus Canadensis), or Wapiti, are not only one of the world's largest game deer but also one of North America's and East Asia's largest mammals. They are attractive, and perhaps that is why they are hunted in different parts of the world for sport.

Male Elk have large 5 feet (1.5 m) wide antlers usually with 6 or 7 tines. Female Elk do not have antlers. Elk have small tails, with between 3 to 8 inches (7.6-20.3 cm) of tan-colored patch. Elk's backs are brown to tan, a bit reddish in the summer, and their bottom is darker. Elk meat becomes more and more protein-rich as they get older and its antlers are generally kept as game trophies

Deer are cloven hooved ungulates which range in size from 1.25’-6.5’ (.4-1.9 m) with all species, except for one, having antlers. Deer exist on every continent besides Australia and Antarctica and live and forage for grasses and shrubs in temperate, alpine, wetlands, and grassland environments.
