Imagine you’re out boating and you see this sight!

Did you know that some believe moose actually dive?  It is said that moose dive to forage for food from time to time.  However, there are doubts from many others.  Check out this information on how fast moose can swim from Teton Science Schools:

We also know moose are incredible swimmers, at least as hoofed animals go.  They are capable of hitting speeds of at least six miles per hour.  That sounds like no more than a jogging speed for humans, but most humans can only swim two miles per hour.  High School swimmers hit three to four miles per hour.  Olympic swimmers win medals above five miles per hour.  So moose are pretty fast swimmers.
