The elk ,the largest member of the deer family found throughout Europe. Europe’s biggest mammal is extremely well adapted to the northern snowy areas, as its hair is hollow and thus insulates against the extreme cold. With the help of its long legs the Elk is able to walk in the snow, swamps and bush.
