Wapiti

Cervus canadensis

Description:

this Wapiti bull I saw at a small animal zoo. Where I follow my internship for 8 weeks. A beautiful park with lots of beautiful animals. The Wapiti photographs are taken at different occasions, but really nice to photograph because he is walking in a free area where you can get really close to him. it's only little bit dangerous because he can turn aggressive. he is walking together with about 60 red deer, hopefully soon there will come a few females for him.

Thanks for the info Bas, didn't know that. It's a little confusing, but easy enough :), so in Europe you call moose> elk, and elk> wapiti.

Yeah we call it wapiti, but in America 'elk'. We call a elk species of moose in Europa. Sow little difficult with the names ;)

So cute, they look a lot like the 'elk' we have here in north America.
