Irish Elk

The Irish Elk is the largest deer that ever lived. Its home range was in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Most of the fossil skeletons have been found in Irish bogs. Its antlers grew to over 12 feet in length. Like all deer, the Irish Elk would shed and regrow its antlers each year.

They grew the largest set of antlers of any deer.
