Elk Lovers Gifts
The Elk or Wapiti is one of the largest species of the Cervidae or deer family in the world, and one of the largest land mammals in North America and eastern Asia. This animal should not be confused with the larger moose, to which the name "elk" applies in the British Isles and Eurasia. Male elk have large antlers which are shed each year. Males also engage in ritualized mating behaviors, including posturing, antler wrestling (sparring), and buging, a loud series of vocalizations which establishes dominance over other males and attracts females. Elk range in forest and forest-edge habitat, feeding on grasses, plants, leaves and bark.
