The Mammoth Moose
Every year, Moose grow brand new antlers. It’s pretty impressive considering these antlers can grow to become 180 centimetres wide! As mating season draws near, bulls will spar with each other to test their strength. This gives them a good idea of how they’re going to stack up to other males. Will they come out number one? Or will that spot be taken by another Moose? They’ll find out in mid-September when the rut really starts. The fight is pretty short but it’s also super intense. Two males start out rocking their heads from side to side and then walk carefully towards each other. If they decide to fight, they join antlers and start shoving. They’ll push with all their might against one another (taking short breaks in between matches) until a winner is decided.
