This article is about an older version of DF.
A large hooved animal found roaming wild in temperate forests. The males have long antlers.

Elk are large, generally peaceful ungulates common in grasslands and tundra. Amateur hunters pursuing an elk may be killed if unprepared for exactly how large elks are.

Products made out of elk parts are worth twice as much as those made from domestic animals like cattle or cats. Due to their great size, they produce a lot of raw materials for bone carvers. They also have a decent pet value and may be tamed with an animal trainer. Elk require a pasture to survive.
