Approximately 7,000 - 8,000 years old.
Megaloceros giganteus, one of the largest deer known to have existed, stood up to 2 meters at the shoulder with antlers up to 3.5 meters wide. It's more commonly referred to as the Giant deer or Irish elk (many of the best preserved specimens have come from lakes and peat bogs in Ireland).
The giant deer survived until as recently as a few thousand years ago. Current evidence suggests it started to disappear in western Europe due to deteriorating climate at the end of the Ice Age from ca. 13,000 years ago, and finally became extinct from eastern Europe and Siberia following the spread of closed forests after the onset of the warmer Holocene Epoch ca. 11,500 years ago. However, the expansion of human populations in Eurasia may also have had a role in its disappearance.
This Radius is absolutely gigantic and is as heavy as it looks. It's about 3 feet in length and about 4-6 inches wide.
