Tian Shan Maral (Kazakhstan)

The Tian Shan wapiti is the largest of the Asian wapitis and grows the finest antlers. It is similar to the American wapiti, although somewhat darker in color and with a longer skull. Overall color is dark brownish-gray, with the head, neck, underparts and legs dark brown with a tinge of red. There is a wide, light-colored ring around the eyes and a narrow white border on the upper lip around the nose. The rump patch is very large and bright reddish-cream in color with a dark brown border, and is divided by a blackish-brown stripe that does not reach the root of the tail. The tail is the same color as the rump, and very short.
