the largest bambi that ever lived.
the irish elk is more properly called The Giant Deer; it stood up to 7 feet tall at the shoulder and had a known maximum antler spread of 12 feet. and it lived as recently as 7700 years ago, gettin' all ice age and whatnot.
yes, it's true. you've guessed it: ice ages slay me!
see more about the irish elk on wikipedia.
while you're there, you might try looking up megatherium, the "great beast".
