This is an illustration of an Irish elk. Why not a photo? Cuz these animals went extinct a long time ago.

@Roberta,
Thanks Roberta, I learned something tonight! That is the largest deer ever. I looked at it and thought, " those are like moose antlers?

I am familiar with the Irish Elk and knew it was very big, but it hasn't dawn on me before about the antlers. Come to find out it isn't closely related to an elk, though the body and head look closely like an elk. It is actually a deer, closely related to the fallow deer shown below:

A very beautiful animal!

@Roberta,
Pointless answer on the quiz show of the same name yesterday. The category was extinct animals, and there were two Pointless and therefore good answers, the other one was the elephant bird.

@BillW,
What’s the difference between a deer and an elk, Bill?

Moose, elk and deer are all three "deer". They are all three different branches of the deer family. Moose (also known as an Elk) and Elk are bigger than deer. Roberta's deer (Irish Elk) above is as big as or bigger than an elk, but hasn't existed during recorded history. The Irish Elk was also know as the Irish Deer or Giant Deer. It is closely related to Fallow Deer.

It kinda get confusing when getting away from general speaking!

So, for an answer to your question - nothing, they are all three "true deer".

@Roberta,

Praying Mantis species boast some of the most majestic colors of any other insect. Not typically aggressive, nor a threat, there is a growing number of Mantis collectors who admire them for the diversity of their unusual, almost alien beauty. Although native to southeast Asia, currently, most Mantis species are sold all over the world, including some of the most in-demand species like The Flower Mantic, and it’s cousin….The Orchid Mantis.

@BillW,
These are spectacular animals. I posted photos of them a long time ago.

You say that mantises aren't aggressive or a threat. I guess that depends on your perspective. Females are notorious for biting off the heads of mates.

@Roberta,
I've never mated with one; but, I think some of my mates had a little mantis blood 😶

@Roberta,
There was a New Yorker cartoon , showing two preying mantids looking at each other. The one had eyelashes and ws therefore a female and she was talking to the male
