If I were to choose, I would like to be:

HUAPITI.........Elk :!:

 This is not even spanish for Elk . This is in the indian language of Kikapoo, but in all of Mexico the Elk, is well know for it?s indian name instead for it?s spanish one: Gran Ciervo Americano.


Slightly different spelling, but that one's on the mammal checklist:
Quote
Elk or Wapiti (Cervus elaphus) -- EXTREMELY RARE
Occasionally seen in the Rosillos Mountains area, the elk are probably wanderers from established herds in the Glass and Del Norte Mountains north of Big Bend National Park. A breeding population is not established in the park.


 Totally agree with you Richard...it is rare and is written differently, but remember it is written in the Kikapoo language,it was adopted by the spanish culture as HUAPITI and ther are herds of them across the river in Maderas El Carmen...that CEMEX project i 've been mentioning all along. :?:
Stay thirsty, my friends.
