Moose Size and Physical Characteristics

The moose (Alces alces), also known as Eurasian Elk in European countries, is the largest is of all the deer species with the males (bulls) weighing 900 to 1600 lbs and females (cows) weighing 500 to 800 lbs. The average shoulder height (length from bottom of foot to shoulder) of these large animals is between 6 and 7 ft tall, but there are reports of some bull moose towering over 14 feet tall. While there are several different people claiming to have harvested the "world's largest moose," one of the most notable accounts is from Russia where a moose weighing over 2,500 pounds was harvested. Now that's one heck of a moose!

The fur coat of a moose can vary from being a light tan color to dark brown, almost black. They are most easily identified by looking for their long skinny legs and the prominent hump on their back. Look to the right to see a photo of what a typical moose looks like in the wild. Notice their distinctive hump, and the early stages of their antler development.

Moose are found throughout most Canadian provinces, northern parts of the continental United States, as well as parts of northern Europe and Asia. During the late 1940s, efforts were made to try and introduce moose into Oregon, but unfortunately constant hunting by local Native American tribes forced their numbers to dwindle.

According to US Game & Fish surveys, Maine currently has the largest population of Moose with a 2012 reading of approximately 76,000. Their numbers in Maine and other parts of the US haven't always been this healthy, though. A century ago, moose were hardly ever seen in the US due to over-hunting. With the combination of conservation efforts and awareness, their population numbers have successfully rebounded, placing the species out of the danger zone.

What Do Moose Eat?

Moose are herbivores, meaning their diet consists of only plant-based material. They will typically feed on what's available to them in their surroundings. Some of the common things moose eat are aquatic plants, leaves, shrubs, forbs, trees, bark, willows, lilies, and herbs. Remember, these are BIG (probably an understatement) animals and their food intake must provide enough energy and nutrients to sustain their body weight. On average, a healthy moose will consume 70 lbs of food a day.

If you live in Canada, you've probably seen a moose roaming around the roads before. When the big snow trucks come in to clear the roads and lay out salt, moose will come to lick it up. They are naturally attracted to the taste of salt, creating a dangerous scenario for both moose and drivers on the road. Cities and governments are looking into alternative ways to keep the roads safe for drivers, but nothing is quite as effective as salt.

Moose only inhabit the northern hemisphere and as such, have adapted well to their cold environment. Using their large, thick hooves, they will dig into the snow during winter to uncover food. These hooves also help the moose to traverse the snow-covered wilderness by spreading their body weight evenly throughout, much like the principle behind snow shoes.

Interesting Moose Facts

The moose is an incredible animal with many interesting features. Read these moose facts below to learn what makes this species so unique.

  • At full speed, a healthy moose can run up to 35 mph, outrunning many of their natural predators, including wolves.
  • Even with their heavy bodies, moose are very capable swimmers, reaching speeds of 5 to 6 mph. One of the features that helps them swim is their hollow hair, which adds buoyancy when swimming.
  • Moose don't have incisors on the upper part of their jaw (don't need them since they are herbivores).
  • A baby moose (calf) weighs around 25-30 pounds at birth.
  • The antlers of a moose are among the most complex in nature and can weigh up to 70 lbs.
  • Unlike other deer species, moose are typically solitary animals and don't travel in herds.
  • Moose are extremely capable swimmers and can even go submerge themselves underwater.
  • A moose can live up to 20 years, although their average lifespan is between 6 and 7.

Moose Antler Growth and Information

Bull moose use their antlers to compete with others in hopes of gaining the right to court with a cow during the mating season (rut). After the rut is over and their antlers are no longer needed, they will begin to shed them. This usually takes place between autumn and early winter. Like all deer species, they will begin to regrow their antlers back with a soft, velvet layer of tissue covering them. This velvet covering is filled with active blood vessels that carries nutrient-filled blood to the antlers, stimulating their growth and development.

If you've ever seen moose antlers, you'll probably notice how they are almost "webbed". Unlike other species of deer, moose produce antlers that are flat and oftentimes webbed in between. Scientists have observed and studied moose and have come to a general consensus that their antlers act as hearing aids by channeling the sound into their ears. It's a similar concept as holding a funnel up to your ear and listening to sounds from far away distances. Once the sound hits the funnel, it will be directed into your ears, and this is essentially how a moose's antlers work.

Moose Subspecies

  • Alaska Moose (Alces alces gigas)
  • Caucasian Moose (Alces alces caucasicus)
  • Eastern Moose (Alces alces americana)
  • Eurasian Elk (Alces alces)
  • Shiras Moose (Alces alces shirasi)
  • Siberian Moose (Alces alces cameloides)

Bull Moose Video

This is an amazing video of a beautiful bull moose with a huge set of antlers. Notice how he's rubbing them on the branches? That helps loosen up the brush so he can feed more easily. Watching these huge majestic creatures is something that everyone should experience at least once in his or her lifetime. Be warned, though, approaching moose in the wild can be extremely dangerous; therefore, it's recommended that you keep your distance and give these animals the respect they deserve.
