Wapiti or Maral (Europe) (typical) - Species Detail
Cervus elaphusWapiti (Sp), Wapiti (G), Wapiti (F). "Wapiti" is a native North American name for this animal. "Maral" is the Farsi (Iran) name for the mideastern red deer, and is also used in Russia and Mongolia for wapiti.Wapiti are native to eastern Asia and North America, but do not occur naturally in Europe. Most of the wapiti whose measurements are listed below were taken in hunting reserves in the Moscow region of European Russia. These reserves were established during the Soviet era to provide good hunting under natural conditions, and with comfortable accommodations, for government officials and important foreign visitors. The animals are free-ranging and are hunted by government permit. We are told they were imported from Siberia, which would indicate they are either Altai wapiti, Manchurian wapiti, or a mixture of the two. (Please see Asia for descriptions of Altai and Manchurian wapiti.)
