Moose are funny creatures. Both European elk and American moose are types of deer. They're the biggest and heaviest species of deer, and can be as tall as 2.10m! Although they're not really moose (they're closer to reindeer), caribou are another related species, and they've managed to sneak on to the list a few times too, because we don't like to leave anyone out.

Even though they're a kind of deer, moose have a lot in common with cows. Their babies are called calves, while female moose are called cows and male moose are called bulls. Groups of moose are called a herd as well, just like cows are.

Our list of hilarious moose puns will get you and your friends and family giggling all summer long.
