Moose are Amazing Swimmers

Think of how many times you’ve seen a moose in the wild. Now think about how many times those moose were taking a swim. It might surprise you, but Moose are exceptional swimmers. A few days after birth, they are able to go on long swims with their mother. When the food on the ground isn’t what they are craving, they also can dive more than 5 meters underwater for food on a lake bottom.
