What does the Moose look like?
Moose are dark brown. Males are larger than females and have giant antlers. They have long legs and course outer coat and warm undercoat that protects them in winter.
Moose are largest member of the deer family and one of the largest land mammals in North America. Moose antlers can be more than 6 feet wide. Moose are mainly solitary and have a great sense of smell that allows for locating food under snow. They are most active at dusk and dawn but can be viewed any time. Their stomachs can hold more than 125 lbs of food, thus they are consequently foraging.
