Caribou and moose shed their antlers every year. Among the fastest growing organs in the animal kingdom, the antlers can reach a span of six feet (1.8 meters) in roughly three months. They regrow their antlers each spring after dropping them in winter to conserve energy.

An Annual Phenomenon - The Winter Shed
I'm a Master Naturalist and an outdoor enthusiast -- mostly kayaking, and I live on a Peninsula in the Chesapeake Bay. I'm the author of The Nature Fan, Nature Fan Activists, Green Earth Almanac, and Amanda's Geographic. Formerly, I ran the nationally syndicated column "National Green Activism" for The Examiner, and I was a key factor in the success of many campaigns. Make sure you don't miss a post, and subscribe by email! Thanks for reading.
