    Elk Family Cervidae, Cervus elaphus nelsoni deer family light tan hair dark mane males' antlers shed each winter bulls cow's calves' forests meadows Early European explorers in North America, who were familiar with the smaller red deer of Europe, believed that the much larger North American animal looked more like a moose, so they used the common European name for the moose, which is elk. While actively growing, the antlers are covered with and protected by a soft layer of highly vascularised skin known as velvet. The velvet is shed in the summer when the antlers have fully developed. Bull elk may have eight or more times on each antler; however, the number of tines has little to do with the age or maturity of a particular animal.Yellowstone - Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park.
