Elk

Native Americans once used clubs made from elk jawbones as weapons.

In spite of their 500-700 pound weight elks can jump obstacles as high as 8 feet.

The antler size of elks is dependent on how early they start growing and how much sunlight they receive each day. Antlers can grow as much as an inch per day in the right conditions.


A group of elk is called a gang.

In the US, Colorado leads the way in numbers of elk with around 200,000. The state is followed by Montana with 150,000.
