THE TWIG EATERS

Add to Cart
Winter is a difficult time for moose since they must survive on the twigs of deciduous trees and shrubs and the needles of conifers. These twigs and needles contain one third the nutrition of the leaves that moose eat during summer. Because of this, moose, like this cow and calf, can lose up to 25% of their body weight during the winter season.
