Moose, known in Europe as elk, are the largest members of the deer family. They also have the largest antlers. Found only on males — which use them to fight each other during mating season — these uniquely shaped antlers may measure as much as 6 feet across and weigh up to 70 pounds.
Massive Moose - By the length of his beard and the grey legs, I figure he must be over 10 years old. He looks to be well over 8 feet at the top of the shoulder hump, and with his head up the height to the top of his antler must be about 12 feet .This guy is king of the forest, no bear or pack of wolves would dare come after him when he has this rack......Considering that a dirt road can fit 1 1/2 cars across — at Elliot Lake in Ontario, Canada.
