This is a card to celebrate the awesome bull Moose, the largest member of the deer family. Our pop-up card is just a few ounces but in real life these giants often weigh over 1200 pounds. They can grow to be over 6 feet tall from hooves to shoulders, not counting their antlers.
Antlers are heavy! The paddles are essentially a big bone, so bulls develop muscular necks to help hold up the enormous paddles. A full grown set of antlers weighs about 40 pounds.
Males are immediately recognizable by their huge antlers, which can spread 6 feet from end to end. Moose have long faces and muzzles that dangle over their chins. A flap of skin known as a bell sways beneath each moose’s throat.
NY Times Diner’s Journal Q&A:
Q. I have never tasted moosemeat but I’m game. (Yuk yuk.) What does it taste like? Is it high or low in fat? What about bear meat. What is that like?
A. Moosemeat is low fat, and it can taste sometimes musty or gamey, sometimes like really rich, minerally beef. I have only had bear stew once, and I recall it was greasy but not much more. And about that joke. . . don’t quit your day job.
Q. Can you order a juicy mooseburger at McDonald’s or Burger King? Are mooseburgers manufactured for export? I have been looking all over for them but there’s no place I can buy them.
A. Sorry, the meat can’t be sold commercially so no Moose Quarter Pounders for you. However, I think it would really put the Big in Big Mac.
