The elk has the upper hand, boasting an impressive speed of 45 miles per hour, plus its impressive antlers and lightning-fast reflexes. In contrast, the gorilla is not as fast but makes up for it with it's strength.
For the gorilla, power is everything. Their sheer brute strength and intimidating presence allow them to dominate their surroundings and secure their place at the top of the food chain. On the other hand, elk rely on speed, agility, and cunning to survive in a harsh and unpredictable world.
