  • Interesting fact: The word "moose" comes from the native Algonquian Indian word meaning "twig eater."
    • moose (Zoöl) A large cervine mammal (Alces alces syn. Alces machlis, syn Alces Americanus), native of the Northern United States and Canada. The adult male is about as large as a horse, and has very large, palmate antlers. It closely resembles the European elk, and by many zoölogists is considered the same species. See Elk.

  • Interesting fact: In Alaska it is against the laww to look at a moose from an airplane.
    • n moose An animal of the family Cervidæ, the Cervus alces or Alces malchis of those who hold that it is the same as the elk of Europe; the moose-deer of America, by some considered specifically distinct from the elk of Europe, and then called Alces americana. It is the largest animal of its kind in America, and corresponds to the elk of Europe, being very different from the American elk or wapiti, Elaphus (Cervus) canadensis. The male may attain the height of 17 hands, and weigh 1, 000 pounds or more. The form is very ungainly, with humped withers and sloping quarters, and a very heavy, unshapely head. The horns are enormous and completely palmate, with many short points. A kind of bag or pouch hangs from the throat. The limbs are thick, with broad hoofs; the tail is very short; the ears are large and slouching; and the muzzle is very broad, with a thick pendulous upper lip. The color is brown of variable shade. The female is hornless, and much smaller and more slightly built than the male. The moose inhabits the northernmost part of the United States, as northern New England, and much of British America. The cut at elk is an equally good figure of the moose.
    • n moose The Alaskan moose has been described as a new species, Alces gigas, distinguished by its larger teeth and antlers, and by other characteristics.

He bought and laid it at the feet of Touch-the-Button Nell.
