ELK

They have large impressive antlers and are bigger than the common deer we would find around us and like all hoofed brethren of their kind are called “ungulates” after the Latin word for hoofs.

They live wild on the western mountainous areas of the North American continent and are herbivorous and find their food from bushes and other foliage edible to them.

They are the largest land animals in North America and males could weigh between 300 to 330 kilograms and with their large antlers could be a formidable opponent for any who intrudes into their domain.
