This week is all about nature. We can write about anything if it is not man made. For example trees – trees were here when the earth was formed in the first place. All the animals like deer, moose, dogs and even cats are all natural. Each one can have babies and that makes more of them so they can be a bigger population in the world.
For this about post about nature I’m going to write about moose and deer. They are both very very fast animals but I have to say that the deer is just a bit faster then the moose. Deer sometimes can grow antlers but moose can grow really big antlers. Deer are mostly afraid if they see something coming at them so they run away but if the target is still following them, they will turned around at the last moment and try to kill or at least injury the target it is facing. The deer is quick and when in battle if it is fighting to protect its cubs, they will fight till they die.

For a snack or food deer eat plants, fruits, acorns and nuts. Deer will eat anything even if it is on the ground. For example, they eat twigs, fallen leaves and tiny branches. Also deer look like they have not that much fur but really they have so much. This deer is what we called a horned deer but only male deer can have horns because as you can see it has 2 horns on its head. This deer is by a little river. It is a bit dangerous for a deer to be out in wild open surface because of HUNTERS! Hunters can kill deer for their good meat. But deer try to stay away from hunters and if hunters see them they’re going to aim really hard and fire their guns.
Now a little bit about moose. Moose are the animals who really get horn or antlers because some people called them that. Okay back to moose

This moose has full grown antlers on its head so it can pick up stuff more easy but the down side when getting under something is going to be a little tricky.
Some interesting facts:
- the males have big antlers
- so tall have to eat taller grass
- in winter moose eat shrubs and pine cones
- moose are most common at lakes rivers mostly any medium bodies of water
