Ever wondered how big moose are? This post will show you! Let’s visualize the average-sized moose in weird places — e.g., in a kitchen, on a basketball court, next to a person, next to a tent.
I’ve found that comparing a moose with weird things helps with perspective — you’ll see (and remember) just how big these beautiful creatures are!
But first, let’s very quickly answer a few questions — just a few, about moose in general. And then we’ll get to the pictures.
What Is the Average Weight of a Moose?
Moose are the largest members of the deer family. The average weight for an adult male moose is about 1,100 lbs (approx. 500 kg), while females are around 800 pounds (approx. 360kg).
There’s a lot more variety in the spectrum than just these two numbers, though; it can range anywhere from 300 pounds all the way up to 1800 pounds!
How Tall Do Moose Get?
Like most animals, moose vary in size depending on their environment. However, both males and females in this species have an average height between 4-6 feet.
The length of a mature moose can range anywhere between seven and ten feet long!
