Deer – Red Vs. Elk – Is a red deer the same as an Elk? I can see no difference in the heads, yet some men claim they are not the same animal.
No, the red deer or stag, of Europe, is a much smaller animal than the wapati or elk of America, but there is a strong resemblance otherwise. There are several varieties of stags in Central Asia that resemble that American elk very closely and many naturalists believe that all the stags, including our elk, descended from one common variety.
