Tian Shan Wapiti or Maral

Cervus elaphus songaricus

Called Tian Shan maral or Semirechian maral in the former Soviet Union. Wapiti is a Native American name for the species in North America, while maral is the Farsi (Iran) name for red deer, and is used in the former Soviet Union and Mongolia for wapiti.

DESCRIPTION (male) Shoulder height as much as 64 inches (163 cm).

The Tian Shan wapiti is the largest of the Asian wapitis and grows the finest antlers. It is similar to the American wapiti, although somewhat darker in color and with a longer skull. Overall color is dark brownish-gray, with the head, neck, underparts and legs dark brown with a tinge of red. There is a wide, light-colored ring around the eyes and a narrow white border on the upper lip around the nose. The rump patch is very large and bright reddish-cream in color with a dark brown border, and is divided by a blackish-brown stripe that does not reach the root of the tail. The tail is the same color as the rump, and very short. The antlers are massive and similar in form to those of North American wapitis. The best antlers of record had a 60-inch (152.5 cm) beam length, 8-1/2-inch (21.6 cm) beam circumference, 45-1/2 inch (115.6 cm) inside spread, and carried 19 total points (Rowland Ward, 1909).

DISTRIBUTION The Tian Shan mountains of eastern Kyrgyzstan, eastern Kazakhstan and north central Xinjiang, China. The numbers in Xinjiang are estimated to be about 50,000. In addition to the wild populations, there are 4,000-5,000 on deer farms in China.
