They love waterbodies. During the summer months they consume around 70 percent of their diet from water vegetation. As well as using it as a way to cool off from the summer heat.
I can’t blame them. An animal that large with a thick coat of nearly black fur must get awfully hot during the heat of the summer.
Moose are just cool to see. They are so massive, bulls can weigh up to 1,500-pounds with 1,00-pounders not being rare at all. Their antlers are cool, large paddles, unlike any other antler bearing animal around.
It’s actually amazing they can walk through the woods with ease, I hardly can and I’m not nearly close to their size with no antlers strapped to my head.
This video is unique. Seeing four moose together may not be that unique but seeing them in a full on swim across a large water body is.
The four moose, two bulls and two cows are just given er’ across the Colorado lake.
The caption says they didn’t just go for a little swim either.
“They swam across the whole lake, climbed out on our side, and galloped off down the hiking trail, to the delight of dozens of hikers”
