Description of Elk
The Elk (Cervus elaphus) is described as a large northern Deer with huge flattened antlers in the male. The Elk is an Artiodactyl ruminant mammal of the family Cervidae. Ruminant animals are even-toed, cud-chewing, hoofed, usually horned mammals which have a stomach divided into four (occasionally three) compartments. Deer are characterised by having deciduous antlers which are borne chiefly by the males. Examples of ruminant mammals are cattle, sheep, goats, deer, and giraffes. The deer family also includes the moose, caribou, and reindeer.
This animal is commonly called an Elk in Europe and called a Moose in North America. Another American name for the Elk is the Wapiti.
