About the Moose

Moose are the largest of all the deer species. A mature bull can weigh 1500 pounds and stand 7 foot tall at the shoulders. Native to northern regions of North America, Europe, and Asia.
 
Bull moose are immediately recognizable by their huge, palmated antlers, which can spread 6 feet from end to end. A flap of skin known as a bell sways beneath each moose's throat.
 
When the ice melts, moose are often seen in lakes, rivers, or wetlands, feeding on aquatic plants both at and below the surface. Moose are at home in the water and, despite their staggering bulk, are good swimmers. They have been seen paddling several miles at a time. On land, a moose can reach speeds of 35 miles an hour over short distances.
 
Bull moose bellow loudly to attract mates during the fall mating season. The usually solitary bulls may come together at this time to battle for mating supremacy. After mating, the two sexes go their separate ways until the following year. Though they may occasionally feed in the same grounds, they tend to ignore each other.
 
The cows give birth to one or two calves in the spring—each weighing some 30 pounds. Young moose stay with their mothers until the following mating season.
