is a Wapiti?
1. noun - Large North American deer, Cervus
canadenis, closely related to the Old World red
deer. It is commonly called Elk in America although
this can be confusing since the name Elk is used in
Europe to refer to the moose. The name Wapiti
originates from the Shawnee literally meaning "white
rump". The wapiti is grayish brown, with a chestnut
mane and light, yellowish rump patch and a short
tail. It is the largest of the deer family besides
the moose; the male stands up to 5 feet at the
shoulder and weighs up to 1,000 lbs. The male has
antlers with 5 or more points on each branch and up
to a 5-ft spread.
proper name - The leading 170 and 2070 traffic
signal control software in the country.
