Cervids - Deer, Elk, etc.

What is more beautiful than the eerie bugle of a rut-crazed Rocky Mountain bull elk? The sound has been likened to that of a "terrestrial whale."

Cervids (pronouced 'ser-vids'), or the deer family is fairly common throughout North America but it can be vastly different from species to species! The differences range from the relatively tiny Key deer subspecies in Florida to the 1,500 pound bull moose in an Alaskan bog. All are equally noteworthy.
