Species: Elk | Location: Yellowstone National Park, United States

Yellowstone is home to thousands of elk, consisting of around 6 or 7 herds.  These Yellowstone elk will migrate north in the winter to the northern range.  Winter is the park's quiet season, which provides ample space for Nat Hab's travelers to capture amazing wildlife photos.
