Moose are large, hoofed mammals that are native to the northern regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are the largest members of the deer family, and can stand up to 6.5 feet (2 meters) tall at the shoulder and weigh up to 1,800 pounds (820 kilograms). Moose have a long, narrow head with a distinctive overhanging snout, and a pair of large, palmate antlers that are shed each year. Moose are adapted to living in cold climates and have a thick, insulating coat of fur that helps to keep them warm in the winter. Moose are herbivorous, feeding on a variety of plants, including leaves, twigs, and aquatic plants. They are strong swimmers and are often seen wading in ponds and streams to feed on aquatic plants. Moose are also known to be aggressive when they feel threatened, and can be dangerous to humans if they are approached too closely. Moose are important members of many northern ecosystems, and play a role in the dispersal of seeds and the maintenance of forest ecosystems. They are also an important cultural and economic resource in many areas, and are often hunted for their meat and antlers.
