Gigantic Moose (Alaska moose or Chukotskiy moose) Moose are striking in appearance because of their towering size, black colour, long legs, pendulous muzzle, and dangling hairy dewlap (called a bell) and the immense, wide, flat antlers of old bulls. Biometrics: Chukotka Moose the largest moose in Asia, with extraordinary large antlers. This moose is very similar to the moose of Alaska. Chukotka moose males are same size females, but the males’horns are much biggest. The body weight of moose about 650-800 kg (1430-1760 lb). Its height at the withers is about 200-224 sm (6’6.74’’ – 7’22’’). The horh weight about 22-45 kg (48,5-100 lb) Features Behavior: These mammals mainly browse on vegetation, rather than grazing on grasses for the bulk of their diet. As herbivores, they consume a wide variety of plants, fruits, and seeds. Most of their diet consists of flowering plants. They also feed fresh shoots from growing trees and aquatic vegetation. The species of plants consumed can vary greatly based on the geographical location. These massive animals can strip an entire branch of leaves, or pull a dandelion from the ground, roots and all, using its sensitive and dexterous upper lip. Habitat: These animals are rather picky when it comes to their […]

The adult male has dark plumage, slate grey and narrowly vermiculated, mostly blackish on head and neck. Wings are dark brown with conspicuous white carpal patch. Upper and undertail-coverts and underparts are dark grey to blackish, with variable amount of white, forming spots or streaks. Underwing-coverts are white. Breast is dark glossy blue/green.

Siberian Moose Siberian moose not only look mysterious and abnormal; they even carry the genes of ancient Elks that are thought to have vanished or gone extinct some 24,000 years ago They are easily recognised with their humped shoulders, broad, overhanging muzzle, and the hanging flap of skin and hair, known as the ‘bell’, which hangs down beneath the throat. Biometrics: A mature trophy bull here will be around 1400 pounds or more and will have an average antler width of 62”-64”. Features Behavior: Moose are the least social species among cervids, remaining fairly solitary except during the mating season. They are not territorial. Outside of the rutting period, males and females are sexually segregated: males and females are separated spatially, temporally, and/or by habitat. It has been hypothesized that this is due to the differences in nutritional needs of the sexes due to body size differences. Moose are crepuscular by nature, being most active at sunrise and sunset. Despite their ungainly appearance, moose are able to run silently through dense forests. Maximum speeds have been clocked at 56 km/hr and sustained speeds at 9.6 km/hr. Moose are also strong swimmers, being known to swim up to 20 km or […]
