About

The two-toed horned moose stands almost 7 feet at the shoulder, with majestic antlers towering over its already enormous form. A single protruding horn juts from above its steaming nostrils.

The two-toed horned moose is a solitary creature, who inhabits forested woodlands and plains. They are strict herbivores, eating both grasses and shoots of new growth trees, but also aquatic plants. The moose only gather in numbers during mating season, where bull moose fight for mating privileges. In contrast, female moose often keep their calves nearby until at least their first year, and sometimes longer.

Although the two-toed horned moose is an herbivore, its massive size combined with its horn and antlers mean that, when angered, it makes for a terrifying experience. When roused, the two-toed horned moose will lower its head and charge, crashing and piercing with its antlers and bludgeoning with its spade-like horn. The moose is not usually aggressive, save when confronted by intrusive humanoids or canine creatures.

At these times, the moose will more often than not charge, as canine creatures are one of the moose’s natural predators.
