Interesting Facts About Moose
Before embarking on one of the best moose tours in Maine with us, there are a few things about these forest giants to help you spot them. Moose tend to stay close to the water as their main diet consists of horsetails and other similar aquatic vegetation, but they also tend to peel bark from trees to munch; thus gaining them the nickname of “twig eaters.” You’ll often find them wading in the water as they search for tasty marsh plants on the bottom of lakes, ponds, and rivers. As the largest member of the deer family, moose are relatively easy to track as the print they leave behind are even-toed and much larger than any other hooved species roaming the forests. They are solitary animals, so they typically travel alone or in small groups consisting of a mother (cow) and her babies (calves). During the late fall and early winter months, you can always tell where a male moose (bull) has passed through as they shed their massive pronged antlers.
