When Giant Deer Roamed Eurasia

Today, the moose is the largest animal in the deer family. But that wasn't always so. This is the story of Megaloceros, often called the Irish elk (although they lived throughout Europe and Asia). Just the antlers of this enormous deer could be 12 feet wide! But those amazing antlers may have contributed to Megaloceros' extinction.

I’ve a feeling the narrator is the same guy that reads the “fine print” at the end of commercials.
