The Moose 🦌 an often overlooked majestic cold-adapted mammal.
- The moose became extinct in Britain during the Bronze Age, long before the European arrival in the Americas.
- The moose is a herbivore and is capable of consuming many types of plant or fruit.
- The youngest bones were found in Scotland and are roughly 3,900 years old.
- Confusingly, the word "elk" is used in North America to refer to a different animal, Cervus Canadensis.
Moose are mostly diurnal (day-time animals). They are generally solitary with the strongest bonds between mother and calf. Although moose rarely gather in groups, there may be several in close proximity during the mating season.
