Night At The Museum Tour: Alaska Moose

Moose are found in suitable localities in northern Europe, Asia, and North America. The largest members of the deer family, they reach their maximum size both in stature and in horn development on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.

As with all deer, moose shed their antlers annually. The antlers of one of the bulls featured in this exhibit have a spread of 77⅝ inches, which at this time represents the world's record.
