What adaptation best helps elks survive in the taiga biome?

There are several adaptations that help the elk survive in the taiga biome.One adaptation is that elk shed their fur/hair twice a year. This way they have a cooler coat in the summer and a warmer coat in the winter. Their hair sheds rain and helps keep the elk dry. The elk's hair is hollow which provides insulation from the wind and cold.Another important adaptation is the elk's antlers. Antlers serve as a defensive mechanism.Elk's hooves are also an important adaptation. The design of the hooves allows the elk to walk long distances on the wide variety of terrain that is found in the taiga biome. The hooves also allow the elk to paw through snow to get at the grass below. Since female elk do not have antlers, they use their hooves for defense.The elk's digestive system is also an important adaptation. Their four stomachs allow the elk to digest the various types of food the elk eats. The elk's teeth are also adapted for biting off tree leaves and mashing them into thin fibers.
