MacEnvy: In Europe, moose are called "elk". What we call elk in North America are actually "wapiti".


I did not know that and I thought you were just bs-ing. But according to wikipedia that's correct. So when Europeans say "a møøse once bit my sister", they really mean it was an elk.  So I guess elk bites kan be pretty nasti.

I think we should issue a ban on all horse-like antlered mammals and those of their elk!

Great Porn Dragon: fusillade762: BarkingUnicorn: Chariset: MacEnvy: In Europe, moose are called "elk". What we call elk in North America are actually "wapiti".

Hippity hoppity goes the wapiti

"Buffalo" are also technically "bison."

Except in Europe, where bison are "wisent."

Do they make the same sound?

If you're talking about that deep, almost subsonic "MUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUH" noise that bison make, yes, wisent make the same noise.

If you're talking on whether European "elk" (aka moose) and American elk (aka wapiti) make the same noise...well, no, because one's a goddamn moose and the other is some big deer that has learned to howl and trample tourists who get too close to them in national parks. :D

And we won't even get into what they call caribou in Europe. :D (Hint: They've managed to domesticate the things, like llamas with antlers :D)


That's only "Ralph" the Wonder Llama.

If it's accompanied by a flying squirrel, it's a moose.

Just like when the news has a story about ducks and puts up a picture of a goose. Or the opposite.
