Full Answer

Due to their stature, moose prefer to graze on tall grasses and shrubs. In the winter, moose eat pine cones and also scrape lichen and moss off of rocks using their tongues. Following the seasonal melting of ice, moose can be found in lakes, rivers and wetland areas, where they feed on aquatic plants.
