I would guess it has the body of a moose and the head of an elk...;-) Just kidding...don't know what it is Paulina, but he makes a great model!! ;-)

Very nice photo! I also think it´s a young deer. This Mesopotamian fallow deer is in young age similar, but rare.


An extremely rare species in the wild (4), the Persian fallow deer (Dama mesopotamica), also known as the Mesopotamian fallow deer (5), has a short, smooth coat ranging from reddish-brown to ochre in colour. A band of white spots runs along the lower body, above which white spots are spread randomly, and a dark line, flanked by two rows of white spots or a solid white line, runs down the centre of the back to the tail. The muzzle and the undersides of the neck, chin and jowls are all white (5). Only male Persian fallow deer bear attractive antlers, which are rather thick and flattened (5) (6).

The Persian fallow deer is similar in appearance to the European fallow deer (Dama dama), except for the Persian fallow deer is larger and lacks the large, flat ‘palm’ on the upper antlers (5). In the past there has been confusion over whether the Persian fallow deer constitutes its own species or is a subspecies of the European fallow deer (Dama dama); however, the Persian fallow deer is now considered to be a separate species (1).

Well, since I was there at the very moment the photo was taken, I would be the definite authority and no guesswork involved. Definitely ELK, in an ELK Preserve. http://www.wildlifehotspots.com/deancreek.html

I would say a deer. Nice photo Pauline.

My first thougth was a young spring moose, but the antlers are more defined and the longer, thinner face leads to me Elk. See: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alchristensen/7309345778/ for reference.

thank you so much for the information my friend..i hope you and your family are doing very well.

You're welcome. It's nice to see the Elk and Moose in the spring as they regrow their antlers for a new season.
