A moose is a type of elk and is the largest member of the deer family. Its name means "Twig Eater"

Most moose can grow up to 6'5. They have long legs which makes them look slow and lazy. Its muzzle is long and fleshy which slightly curves around its nostrils. Males have a sac, also known as the bell, hanging from their necks. Males also grow large and heavy antlers that separately grow from the middle on their heads which, later down the line, forks out in different directions. These antlers are used for fighting for mates and shed them off after mating session in order to save their strength for winter. They then grow it back during spring in three months making them the fastest growing organ in the world.
