The largest member of the deer family, moose are massive mammals that can grow over 7 feet tall and are easily identified by their enormous antlers. Native to the colder areas of multiple continents, moose account for the second most injuries caused by an animal worldwide.
Did you know that moose are so popular to hunt in their endemic regions, such as Alaska, that they’ve had their numbers artificially?
