The moose is the largest member of the deer family and is known for its tremendous antlers, which occur only on the bulls.
God designed the moose with powerful front and hind feet to protect it from predators. An unwary predator can be killed by these powerful defenses. These defenses were not necessary until after the Fall, since animals did not eat other animals before then.
