Book - 2005
Rate this:
A beautifully illustrated book that celebrates the magnificent and elusive moose. Weighing up to 1,800 pounds, the moose is the largest living member of the deer family. It ranges across northern Canada and Alaska, and inhabits Scandinavia and the former Soviet Union, where it is called 'the elk.' Though many consider it to be a lumbering, slow animal, the moose, in fact, can run up to 35 miles an hour, swim effortlessly for long periods of time, dive as deep as 18 feet and stay submerged for as long as a minute. Its considerable weight and awesome antlers also make it a foe to be avoided. Combined with its legendary fearlessness, it will repel a pack of wolves with only its hooves and has been known to charge airplanes.
