This is a majestic creature which rules Canada’s forest from Newfoundland to the Pacific Coast. Moose are the largest of all the deer species, and are immediately recognizable by their huge antlers, which can span 6 feet from end to end. Moose are very tall, so they tend to prefer to browse higher grasses and shrubs, as lowering their heads to ground level can prove difficult. In winter their hooves act as snowshoes to support their intense weight in soft snow and in muddy ground. When the ice melts in the summer, moose can often be seen in lakes and rivers, eating aquatic plants both at and below the surface. Despite their staggering weight and size, are strong swimmers. The usually-solitary male moose (bulls) come together during rutting season to battle with their antlers for mating dominance. Females give birth to one or two calves in the spring; these calves grow quickly, and can outrun a human by the time they are just five days old.
