Random Moose Facts!

It's time for our weekly feature, Moosey Monday! (Yes I know it's Tuesday I missed this yesterday). Also as a side note do not look up moosey on Urban Dictionary as it has nothing to do with Moosey Monday. Today there will be a simple listening of moose facts and next week something extra special will be prepared!

Did you Know?
  • Moose can weigh up to 1,800 pounds but still reach speeds of 35 mph.

  • The word moose means bark eater.
  • Male moose shed their 90 pound antlers every winter and grow them back in the spring!

  1. Interesting... I didn't know elk = moose! thanks for the info.

  2. You forgot to mention that moose can move there front legs sideways (parallel to the ground) and club you.
