An Eastern moose lives in Eastern Canada or the Northeastern United States. They have more of a mahogany brown color. Just like most moose, they like to live where it is a bit cooler. They live in thick forests so they can have a large amount of food. Eastern moose is the third largest of the moose types. All moose become more aggressive and will charge you if they feel threatened during mating season or if you are between a mother and her calf.
A Northwestern moose lives in Northern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Dakota, the northern part of Michigan and British Columbia to western Ontario Canada. These moose are the second-largest moose. They can get up to 6 ½ feet tall and their antlers can span to 5.6 feet. Moose are not social animals, they only come together during mating season.
Shira moose are the smallest subspecies of moose in North America. Which is crazy because they are still so big. Weighing over 1,000 pounds. Shiras moose are more of a gray-brown color. They live in Wyoming, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Montana. Fun fact about moose, they are very nimble and surefooted animals. They can walk very quietly.
Alaskan Moose are found in Alaska and Western Yukon. They are the largest subspecies in North America weighing about 1,600 lbs. They are more of a Black-brown color. When a calf is born it has a red-brown coat, but after a few weeks they shed that coat and the color looks more like the adults. A moose’s antlers become quite large by the age of 6 years old, but their antlers are at their largest when they are about 10-12 years old. Another fun fact about all moose is they can eat more food in a day than a black bear.
