The moose is the largest member of the deer family in the world. In North America it is found in wooded areas of Canada and the northern United States.
Maximum size of a bull may stand more than 6 ft high at the shoulder and weigh more than 1400 lbs. The males bare enormous , broud, flattened antlers with prongs, or tines which can attain a spread of 5ft or more. The antlers are shed each year after the mating season.
Moose generally are solitary, although they may form into small bands in winter and trample down the snow where good cover exists, making a moose yard where the animals stay while the food lasts.
