A "moose" ("Alces alces;" called "elk" in Europe) is a large deer. Some authorities put the American moose in a different species, "Alces Americans."
A male moose is called a "bull," a female moose is called a "cow," and a young moose is called a "calf." A group of moose is called a "herd of moose." The plural form of moose is "moose," not "meese."
Moose live in northern Europe, Asia, and in North America. Moose usually live in areas with lakes, marshes and swamps. They also live in mountain ranges.
