Question about moose?

Why are they so huge? I read that today a moose is like 7-10 feet and weigh about 1,500 pounds (male) and 750... .(female) I thought moose were like the size of deer


"I thought moose were like the size of deer [sic]" They are the size of deer because they are a species of cervid, i.e. deer.


moose are larger than deer


It's because they're basically unchanged from caveman times. Out of all the large species from prehistory (cave bears, cave lions, wooly mammoths), moose just happened to survive, probably because they're hard to kill.


Because all the little meese were killed by Boris and Natasha.


What kind of answer do you expect? Their size is their size.
