What do elk eat?

Elk are primarily grazers, although they are more selective of what they eat than roughage herbivores like cattle. They eat grass as well as leaves of shrubs and trees, and can be found grazing on the open exposed slopes of mountainsides during the winter. In the summer, they are mostly in the forest and lower open meadows.

Are moose and elk from the same family?

In Europe the name elk refers to the same animal as the North American animal called a moose. Both of these are common names for the scientific name 'Alces alces'. In North America, however, the common names elk and moose are two different species. Moose, as explained above, are 'Alces alces', while elk are 'Cervus canadensis'. Another name for 'Cervus canadensis' is wapiti. Both 'Alces alces' and 'Cervus canadensis' belong to the 'cervidae' or deer family.

What is an elk's habitat?

Hmmm...depends on your meaning for the word "elk." As an US citizen, what I call an elk is actually a wapiti, the second largest deer species in the world. They live in the northwest of the US and contiguous Canadian areas, and also in northern Asia. Its ranges are temperate to sub arctic forests and forest edges. A closely related, smaller species is the red deer of northern Europe. Now, that having been said, a Euopean would usually call the animal I call a "moose" an elk. These animals live in a band extending all the way around the world on the same latitude, roughly centered roughly on the 48th parallel, the main division between the US and Canada. They don't carry sextants, though, so the habitat is variable. The moose is the largest member of the deer family still extant. Both animals have been transplanted to other places, such as New Zealand. I recall reading in a very interesting book on mammals once that the moose had been a subject of domestication research by the Soviet Union. It said the Soviets reported the moose could be trained to draw sleds or adapted for saddle-riding, and was more stable around running aircraft than horses are.
