I have an idea for writing a book about a moose but it all depends on one thing - can a moose survive in Mexico?


I've noticed in my initial research that they all seem to live in cold weather country like Alaska, Canada, or the U.P.

Is that the only kind of environment they can live in or can they somehow adapt to the harsher weather of Mexico and the Southwest U.S.A.?




Great question Jeffrey!

Your research has paid off. Moose cannot survive in warm climates, as a matter of fact moose go into heat stress when summer temperatures reach 65 degrees Fahrenheit and above 23 degrees in winter.

Moose are found only in the northern hemisphere predominantly in the Boreal forests. They are not usually found below central Wyoming as the habitat and temperatures there are not suitable.
