AMAZING ANTLERS: Moose Coloring Page

In North America, moose live in Canada, Alaska, northern New England, the Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota, and northern Michigan. Only male moose have antlers.  New antlers are grown and shed each year and each new set is bigger and heavier than the last.  The largest known moose antlers are 81 inches (2 meters) across and weigh 95 pounds (43 kilograms)!  No two sets of moose antlers are alike.
Antlers first appear in April as small bumps on the head. They are full grown by mid-August. They are the fastest growing bones of any mammal.

You can learn more about moose in my book A MOOSE'S WORLD (Picture Window Books, 2010.)  Look for A Moose's World in your library.  Or look for the interactive e-book at http://www.capstonepub.com/library/products/moose-s-world-2/ .
