Moose Species in Urskoga | World Anvil


The moose is a delicacy on the menu of Morg's and is also the mascot of the restaurant.   The moose is regularly called “the king of the forest” in Sweden and some people in the supernatural community do think it’s presumptuous of the Mediators to have the animal as their mascot. But most in the community think that it fits since the moose symbolizes wisdom, confidence, self-esteem and endurance. Which is some of the qualities a mediator is expected to have. Old Vampires and werewolves can attest to the fact that the organization is the most powerful in the area, at least when it comes to keeping the peace.  


They have four long legs and are almost 7 feet tall. They have a bulbous nose, short tails and the males have large antlers. Their furs is dark brown or black. Some of the moose around Urskoga appear much taller, have larger antlers than other moose and some even appear to have glowing eyes.  


The moose can be found in forests all over Sweden except in Gotland. They are very common in the forests around Urskoga and can be seen pretty often. If there are no werewolves around, of course.  


The moose are herbivores, which means that they eat vegetation such as leaves, twigs and buds. Many people in Urskoga gather these things and leave them out for the mooses to eat. They also eat leaves from plants that only exists in Urskoga...  


Climate change is a major threat to the moose as they are very sensitive to warmer climates. This is one of the reasons why some want less moose hunted during the hunting seasons. Not everyone agree.  


The moose are mammals and reproduce internally. The breeding season for the female moose starts in September and lasts until October. The female moose are called a cow and they usually get their first calves when they around the age of 2-3 years old. Their calves are born around May and they get around 1-2 calves. Around Urskoga twins and triplets are common.
