Bull elk grow antlers beginning in May and continuing through August of each year. Antlers are shed in late March and April. Antler growth begins when bulls reach approximately one year of age. A bull's first antlers typically are unbranched spikes.
Sharks are viviparous, meaning they give birth to live young that are nourished inside the mother shark. Sexual maturity is reached between the ages of 8 - 10.
Bull males bellow loudly to attract mates each September and October. The bulls are normally solitary (live alone), but come together during the mating season to battle with other males using their huge antlers.
