Elk Sheridan Newsom SCI 403
The largest of our deer species.
Elk – (Cervus canadensis)
Elk were introduced to New Zealand from North America earlier last century. Elk are the largest round-horned deer in the world and to look at the proud, upright carriage of the neck and head of a bull Elk, with the crowning might of his antlers, is to realise that here we have a magnificent animal.
