You don’t see that every day.
Seeing a moose in the water is quite normal.
They love bodies of water. In the summer months, they get about 70 percent of their food from aquatic plants. Also to cool off from the summer heat.
I can’t blame them. Such a large animal with a thick, almost black fur must get terribly hot during the summer heat.
Moose are just cool to see. They are so massive that bulls can weigh up to 1,500 pounds, with 1.00-pounders not being uncommon at all. Their antlers are cool, big paddles, unlike any other antlered animal.
It’s really amazing that they can walk through the woods with ease, I can barely and I’m nowhere near their height with no antlers on my head.
This video is unique. Seeing four moose together might not be that unique, but seeing them swimming across a large body of water is.
The four moose, two bulls and two cows are given straight across the Colorado Lake.
The caption says they didn’t just go swimming for a bit, either.
“They swam all over the lake, climbed out on our side, and galloped down the trail to the delight of dozens of hikers.”
