1. Irish Elk
This is the Irish Elk and its one of the largest deer that ever lived. It stood at around 7ft tall at the shoulders and large specimens weighed up to 700kg (1,500lbs) or more. It lived in Ireland and across Europe and went extinct in the early Holocene due to nutrient stress and human hunting for their huge antlers which could reach a size of 40 kg (88 lbs) and span almost 10 ft.
