* Long legs and a thick body allow the moose to move through deep snow and wet areas without trouble * Their hair is wider at the tip than the base to make an insulating layer of warmth around them in the winter months. * The two large toes on the moose hooves are spread apart wide enough to keep the moose from sinking into the snow * When winter begins, moose grow a thicker and furrier coat to stay warm
