Elk Where they live Elk mostly inhabit the western side of the US in the rocky mountains and do not migrate What they eat Elk are grazers and eat lots of vegetation such as grass, shrubs, and even small trees. Mating Process tap and hold to change this header text! Elk only mate at one time during the year, this time is called the rut. The rut may begin around August 20th and go through the end of october at the latest. During the rut a bull elk (male) will search frantically for a cow elk (female). Once found they will claim the cow elk unless she is already accomponied by a larger bull in which case he will either search for a new mate or fight the larger elk although the seconed option is rarely chosen it does happen. If the cow is accomponied by smaller bull the elk will challenge the smaller elk by letting out a very deep sounding bugle and shaking their horns to intimidate the smaller bull into leaving. Elk have a large rack (set of horns) to help attract a female and to fight other bull elk if the need arises tap and hold to change this title text! Elk have strong front legs so they can run fast for long ditances to get away from predators and even stronger hind legs for pushing against other elk when they fight Elk stay in large groups During the spring and summer for safety but when the rut starts in fall its a free for all Elk have a special stomach to help them digest everything they eat because they are such a large animal and need alot of food each day but they only eat vegetation so they need a better stomach than most animals When a cow elk has a baby the baby elk stays with itsmother until the next fall when the mother reproduces again Elk are in the cervidae family and are in the mammalia class.
