    The moose, or referred to as the elk in Europe, belongs to the deer family. It is the largest member of the family. Moose are distinguished by the large antlers of the males, other members of the deer family have antlers that are “twig-like.” American elk, interestingly, were named after the closely related elk in Europe because they thought they looked more similar.
