Moose can also travel through practically any terrain. Their long, stilt-like legs make it easy for them to travel over fallen trees and deep snow.
Moose are powerful swimmers and sometimes dive for plants at the bottom of a lake.
The antlers of a moose begin growing in midsummer and are soft and spongy during that period of growth, with blood vessels running through them. By late August or early September the antlers are fully developed, hard and bony. Adult moose normally shed their antlers in November.
Maine designated the Moose as official state animal in 1979.
