The moose is a massive animal that can’t be appreciated until seen in real life. This bull moose is growing out his antlers, which are in the velvet stage. Once these have finished growing, the velvet will be shed and the points sharpened as it readies for battle. Just like us, the moose loves to cool off in the water on a hot summer day. It’s been known to swim a distance of 19 kilometres and dive more than 5.5 metres deep to munch on aquatic plants.
