Cervalces scotti was a large, extinct species of deer that lived in the mid-west during the Pleistocene and Pliocene. Cervalces scotti went by many nicknames including stag-moose, elk moose, and Scott’s moose due to its large antlers and resemblance to large ungulates like elk and moose, of which it was not directly related. Like modern deer, Cervalces shed its antlers between the spring and fall seasons and regrew them each year. The species went extinct towards the end of the Ice Age due to the changing climate and possibly by the invasion of the true moose from Eurasia. The original Cervalces scotti fossil was discovered by William Clark, of Lewis and Clark, in 1805 in what is now known as Big Bone Lick State Park in Kentucky. This specific Cervalces specimen was discovered in 1973 from Warren County, New Jersey in a peat and marl deposit and dated to 11,230 BP.

This is a museum quality cast replica made with a durable polyurethane resin. It was molded directly from the original restored skull, not a 3D printed skull or a sculpture.
