The Irish Elk (Megaloceros giganteus) was a species of Megaloceros and one of the
largest deer that ever lived. Its range extended across Eurasia, from Ireland to east of
Lake Baikal, during the Late Pleistocene. The latest known remains of the species
have been carbon dated to about 7,700 years ago.
During the 18th Century it became fashionable for Grand Irish Mansions to mount
sets of Elk Horns discovered buried within peat bogs of their Country Estate.
Age: Over 10,000 years old.
