The appearance of the elk can be surprising. Its short body is carried by very long limbs. Large ears and an imposing bulging muzzle surround surprisingly small eyes. Its general appearance is a cross between a horse and a deer. In general, it uses the trot to move, but to flee a danger, it passes to the gallop which enables him to reach 50 km/h. Finally, let’s not forget its swimming skills which it uses to look for its food under water.
As far as clothing is concerned, he wears a very thick coat in winter. Now, let’s talk about the headdress. As with most deer, the male has proud antlers that sometimes reach two meters in length. In some places, they are flattened, which is a characteristic of the species.
