Full Answer

Moose maintain their massive physique by consuming up to 50 pounds of food a day. As herbivores, their diet consists of flowering shrubs, aquatic plants and tree shoots. Their diet varies according to their migration patterns. The stomach of a moose is incredibly hardy, as it can hold up to 112 pounds of food at a time. Despite their incredible size, moose can run up to 35 miles per hour and are talented swimmers.
