WHAT IS THE MOOSE?


Besides being a great animal the Moose is also the state animal for Maine in the United States. It is the largest animal in North America that has antlers. It is also a member of the Deer family of animals. It can grow to be ten feet long and seven feet tall, but it is extremely rare at this size. It can also grow to become 750 pounds in the girth of it's weight. The Moose tends to eat willow, birch, aspen, pine, cerry and mountain ash.



The mating season for the Moose is in Late September or early October and many of the older females often give birth to twin offspring. The Moose is an animal that is constantly looking for food and often it looks for sodium, commonly known as salt. Humans provide the most plentiful suply of this mineral when we salt the roads during the winter. This is why the moose is often seen in or near populated areas. With our salt and crops, humans are the mooses number one friend. In most Canadian provinces and American States there is a ban on hunting this creature so the Moose is usually safe from humans.

The Moose is most dangerous when it is protecting it's young. It is also dangerous to startle them! And you never know what a bull moose will do during mating season, so please use extreme caution when getting close to one. Viewing a moose from your vehicle is least stressful to the moose, and safest for you. If you should happen to come upon the moose in the forest, move very slowly, and avoid any loud noises or sudden movement. This will ensure an extended, enjoyable observation, and will prevent the moose from injuring itself or you. Moose eat all sorts of plant matter. In the summer, moose wade and swim through marshes and lakes, eating water plants. They also eat the tender shoots such as birches, willow, or poplar. In the winter, they will forage near the edges of forests, eating plant material such as bark or branches. Only mature bull moose have antlers. These antlers can very quickly grow to be very large size. The rate of bone formation is the fastest known: up to one inch a day. Moose shed their antlers before the winter each year and grow them back in the spring. Why do they lose their antlers, considering the amount of energy it takes to grow them? One reason they might shed their antlers is to make foraging in the winter easier. Another reason is that the antlers each year are generally larger than the year before. Starting over would allow the moose to expand not only length, but also broadness and bulk.
