What animal would be worthy of being called “Master of His Domain”?

Master of His Domain Jim HanselCalling an animal a “Master” of his domain is pretty impressive, and moose are definitely worthy of being called a master [or mistress] of its domain. This is because due to its size [up to 6.9 feet high at the shoulder] and weight [males can weigh up to 1,500 pounds], it can be considered the largest of the deer family. Its “domain” covers Canada, the United States, Russia, Scandinavia, Baltic States and a small part of the Czech Republic with Canada, Russia, United States and Sweden¬† have the largest number.

Thankfully, even though moose are the second largest land animal in North America and Europe, they are not usually aggressive towards humans. Bears, Siberian Tigers, Wolves and humans are their natural predators. They mate in the fall and are herbivores, needing over 70 pounds of food a day. Interestingly, North Americans refer to this animal as moose but in Britain [where it is extinct], it is called elk. What North Americans refer to as elk, Britons refer to as wapiti.

As you and your loved ones assemble this Moose jigsaw puzzle, it would be a great time to learn more about moose, bison and elk which are the largest land animals in the Northern Hemisphere.
