Coat-Hanger Elk

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A very large deer whose surviving examples in the wild are to be found in NoThingfjord. Prized for its horns, which make magnificent coat-hangers, special conditions govern its ownership. To obtain a permit to own one of these creatures, you must allow it to live in a large walk-in wardrobe. Apparently, it can get quite whiffy in there, but at least you'll always know where your best suit is. Lord Vetinari has a fine example of the Coat-Hanger Elk in captivity, in the Palace Menagerie in Ankh-Morpork.
