Also known as the Olympic elk, the Roosevelt elk is one of the largest deer species in North America. They are characterized by their dark and bulky necks and the bulls often have large, branching antlers. Roosevelt elk live inside forests on flat and steep terrain, but often venture out along the edges where they feed on grass and woody plants. They are commonly found in large herds. Male elk often make loud and highly distinct sounds, known as bugling, that can be heard over very long distances. Adult males (bulls) are typically 40 % larger than their female counterparts (cows) and weigh on average 320 - 331 kg (705 - 730 lb).
