This gallery contains 2 photos. The antlers of the Roosevelt elk bull is a real attention-getter. I’m not sure if putting the grass on one’s head is for ornamental (i.e. to make him more attractive to the females) or constructive (i.e. to keep the noggin from cooking the sun).
The habitat of this elk species at the Greater Vancouver Zoo is, not surprisingly, huge; with plenty of elk in the neighbourhood, you want to give everyone their personal space (especially during rutting season). These are the females (cows), which I photographed much later in the day.
