Alces americanus

Here is Leigh’s moose. Leigh has only one more mammal coming to him! I read this on Animal Diversity Web: “Moose are limited to cool regions because of their large bodies, inability to sweat, and the heat produced by fermentation in their gut.”

Aren’t you glad you don’t have fermentation in your gut that produces uncomfortable heat? I assume you don’t, anyhow.
