64 Moose Names From Fiction, As Well As Ideas For More

Moose are unique creatures.

Moose are animals from the subfamily of New World deer.

They are actually the heaviest and also the biggest species belonging to the deer family. Most full grown male moose have unmistakable wide, palmate prongs, whereas other animals from the deer family have horns with a dendritic design.

Moose commonly occupy boreal timberlands and blended backwoods and broadleaf in the Northern Hemisphere. They stay in subarctic and mild climates and their diet consists of both land and sea based vegetation.

Hunting and other human exercises have caused a decrease in the size of the moose population over the years. Moose are now being reintroduced to some of their previous territories in a bid to combat this, but today most moose are found in Canada, Alaska, New England, Fennoscandia, the Baltic states and Russia.
