The moose (North America) or elk (Eurasia), Alces alces, is a member of the New world deer subfamily and is the largest and heaviest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the broad, palmate (open-hand shaped) antlers
of the males; other members of the deer family have antlers with a
dendritic ("twig-like") configuration. Moose typically inhabit boreal forests and temperate broadleaf and mixed forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climaates.
