What do Moose Eat?
All moose are herbivores, and need to consume nearly
10,000 calories per day to maintain their body weight.
and as much as half of their diet usually consists of
aquatic plant life. In winter, moose are often drawn
to roadways, to lick salt that is used as a snow and
ice melter. A typical moose can eat up to 71 pounds
of food per day.
