Luleå, Meet a Moose & Reindeer
While walking in a Swedish forest you might suddenly be surprised to see or hear a horse-sized animal crashing off through the vegetation. The Moose is the largest of all the deer species. They reach 170 – 210 cm height at shoulder and a large bull can weight up to 850 kg.
These kings of the forest are an imposing sight with their huge crowns of antlers, but they are generally shy. Considering their huge size moose are surprisingly seldom seen. They usually shelter in dense forest during the daytime, feeding on forest plants. They are best to spot when they occasionally venture out of the trees to graze on marshes, meadows and fields in the twilight hours around dawn and dusk.
