New Series – Giants of the Ice Age
Megaloceros is an extinct genus of deer whose members lived throughout Eurasia from the early Pleistocene to the beginning of the Holocene and were important herbivores during the Ice Ages. The largest species, Megaloceros giganteus, vernacularly known as the “Irish elk” or “Giant elk”, is also the best known. They are thought to be most closely related to the living Dama deer.

The Irish elk evolved throughout the last few million years during the glacial periods and Ice Age, specifically the Pleistocene epoch. Once established, the elk spread throughout Europe, northern Asia and Africa, and some parts of China. Physically, the Irish elk was the heaviest known member of the “Old World deer”, a division of the subfamily Cervinae whose groups the “Old World deer” and “New World deer” are distinguished by foot structure rather than geographical origin. The first Megaloceros giganteus appeared about 400,000 years ago, but most Irish remains date from between 11,750 BP and 10,950 BP. Over 100 individuals have been found in Ballybetagh Bog, Co. Dublin, the outstanding site known. Studies have shown they possibly evolved from M. antecedens. The earlier taxon, sometimes considered a paleosubspecies M. giganteus antecedens, is similar, but had more complex and compact antlers
