Brand-New Elk Calf

“Brand-New Elk Calf “

This elk calf is the youngest that our staff has been lucky enough to see. “A cow elk usually gives birth to just one baby at a time after a six-month gestation period. Elk babies are called calves and weigh around 31 to 35 lbs. (14 to 16 kg) when they are born. After just 20 minutes, a calf can stand on its own.”(
