The Moose is the largest of all the deer species, inhabiting North America and Northern Europe.

They have long legs, huge palmate antlers, humped shoulders and a flap of skin known as the “bell” which hangs from the throat.

Like all the deer species, except the reindeer, only males have antlers.

Moose eat leaves from trees and shrubs and aquatic plants.
