Moose live in warm to cold climates across North America and Europe. With big muscular shouldersskinny legs a slender rump and a stubby little tail. They are the
largest member the deer family. They stand taller than a
horse. Moose have long funny faces and a strong
flexible upper lip. Under their chin itself very floppy bit of skin called
the bell. They love to eat small plants, vegetation and underwater plants. A female news is called a cow. And a young moose is called a calf. Cows are very good mothers. They never let their calfs get too far away. While they’re young the calves drink milk from their mothers. A male moose is called a bull. Can you spot the difference between a bull and a cow? Yes a bull has antlers. Antlers are wonderful horns that look like tree branches. Male moose grow their antlers at the end of summer. They use them to fight other moose. The antlers and drop off or shed before winter. Ready to grow back the next year. Don’t moves have fascinating features?!
What an amazing animal.
