North American elk .: CW69-4/80-1990E-PDF
"The North American elk, or wapiti, is the largest form of the red deer species Cervus elaphus. "Elk" is the name by which most Canadians know this majestic deer. "Wapiti," meaning "white rump," is the Shawnee Indian name and the common name preferred by scientists, because the animal known as an "elk" in Europe is not a red deer at all but a close relative of the North American moose"--p. .
