Bull moose have antlers like other members of the deer family. Cows select mates based on antler size. Bull moose use dominant displays of antlers to discourage competition and will spar or fight rivals. The size and growth rate of antlers is determined by diet and age; symmetry reflects health.
The male’s antlers grow as cylindrical beams projecting on each side of the head at right angles to the midline of the skull, and then fork.
The lower prong of this fork may be either simple, or divided into two or three tines, with some flattening.
Moose antlers are broad and palmate (flat) with tines (points) along the outer edge.
The antlers of mature Alaskan adult bull moose (5 to 12 years old) have a normal maximum spread greater than 200 centimetres (79 in).
By the age of 13, moose antlers decline in size and symmetry. The widest spread recorded was 210 centimetres (83 in) across. (An Alaskan moose also holds the record for the heaviest weight at 36 kilograms (79 lb))
