Sex dating in red deer
Moose have been reintroduced to some of their former habitats.
Currently, most moose are found in Canada, Alaska, New England, Fennoscandia, Baltic states, and Russia.
In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada (excluding the arctic and Vancouver Island), most of Alaska, northern New England and upstate New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale in Lake Superior.
The wapiti is superficially very similar to the red deer of central and western Europe, although it is distinctly different behaviorally and genetically.After expanding for most of the 20th century, the moose population of North America has been in steep decline since the 1990s.Populations expanded greatly with improved habitat and protection, but for unknown reasons, the moose population is declining rapidly.The moose (North America) or elk (Eurasia), Alces alces, is the largest extant species in the deer family.
Moose are distinguished by the broad, flat (or palmate) antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a dendritic ("twig-like") configuration.The wapiti appeared very similar to the red deer of Europe (which itself was almost extinct in Southern Britain) although it was much larger and was not red.
