wildlife photography portfolio of moose from the family, Capreolinae.
, Alces alces, is the largest species in the deer family. Moose
are distinguished by the antlers of the males. Moose
typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Moose
used to have a much wider range but hunting and other human activities greatly reduced it over the years. Moose
have been reintroduced to some of their former habitats. The most common Moose
predators are wolves, bears, and humans. Unlike most other deer species, Moose
are solitary animals and do not form herds. Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, Moose
can become aggressive and move surprisingly quickly if angered or startled. Their mating season in the autumn can lead to spectacular fights between males competing for a female.
The collective noun for a group of Moose
is a herd
. A boring and widely used term. I think they should be called a Rack
