Winter Elk

 

Elk or Wapiti are one of the largest species of the deer family in the world. Elk range in forest and forest-edge habitat, feeding on grasses, plants, leaves, and bark. They are ruminants and therefore have four-chambered stomachs. During a Yellowstone winter you can find them browsing on willows and aspens.

 

This bull elk stopped at the top of a hill to consider his next move. As winter brings deep snow burying nutritional plants, animals migrate to meadows and forest areas where accessing food is much easier.
