Elk Calf

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.

According to Wikipedia, “The elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species within the deer family, Cervidae, and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America and Northeast Asia.”
