Moose

Moose (Alces alces) is the common name for the largest member of the deer family. The name moose, means "eater of twigs," reflecting the animal's primary diet of leaves and twigs. Moose are huge animals, with males, known as bulls, standing up to 2 m (6.5 ft) at the shoulder. Some bulls weigh more than 1600 lb. Their long legs enable them to both browse on low bushes and small trees and wade in lakes and ponds to feed on aquatic plants. The large, constantly moving ears of the moose act like radar, providing excellent hearing. They are often found in the cities eating foliage from trees.
