The moose is the largest of the deer family. It has a broad, a flap of skin, known as the bell, hanging from its throat. The huge antlers of the male are flat, with many small branches. The moose is usually alone except during the breeding season. In winter, it feeds on woody plants. In summer, it likes to eat water plants. A moose swims well. The female gives birth to one calf most of the time. The calf stays with its mother for a year.
