Is Yakul from Princess Mononoke an Elk or an Ibex?
This is an Ibex http://www.biosphere-expeditions.org/images/stories/altai/ibex2.jpg
This is Yakul , the Red Elk from Princess Mononoke http://www.onlineghibli.com/mononoke_hime/newimages/Yakul.jpg
I love this movie dearly, and Yakul is my favorite character, but they drew him as an Ibex and called him a red elk.
So did the animators draw wrong?
Was there a mis-translatin?
Are there really red elk in Japan?
