Fun Facts

The term “moose” is a name of North American origin, and the scientific name Alces comes from its Latin name. The animal was known in Britain as the “elk.” The moose went extinct in Britain during the Bronze Age, long before the Europeans’ discovery of America. The youngest bones were found in Scotland and are roughly 3900 years old. The word “elk” remained in usage because of its existence in continental Europe but, without any living animals around to serve as a reference, the meaning became rather vague to most ancient speakers of English, who used “elk” to refer to “large deer” in general. Dictionaries of the 18th century simply described “elk” as a deer that was “as large as a horse”.

On average, an adult moose stands 1.4–2.1 m (4.6–6.9 ft) high at the shoulder.  Males (or “bulls”) normally weigh from 380 to 700 kg (838 to 1,543 lb) and females (or “cows”) typically weigh 200 to 490 kg (441 to 1,080 lb).
