Powerful and swift land mammals, elk range through the plains, hills, and forests of many wildernesses, in great herds. Related to deer, elk prove important parts of many ecologies, being able to fend off or flee many threats while feeding greater predators. Their size, strength, and antlers—reaching up to 10 feet wide on some males—allow them to contend with most of their environment’s dangers, though herds generally favor flight to combat.
River elk grow to approximately 6 feet tall and weigh between 700 and 1,100 pounds.
