Moose are the largest species in the deer family and are easily distinguished by their long legs, head and snout, as well as their large shovel like (palmated) antlers. Their fur is typically dark brown, grey and sometimes black. Males feature a dewlap, which is a fatty piece of skin under the chin. Moose are commonly found in most of the Northern Hemisphere and thrive in temperate and subarctic climates. They often reach an impressive height of 2 m (6.9 ft) and weigh between 200 - 500 kg (440 - 1080 lb), Moose are herbivores and solitary animals that are rarely found in groups or herds. Although they are often slow-moving and calm animals, they can easily become aggressive if startled or threatened. When hunting moose, shot placement is essential as they are very tough and surprisingly nimble.
