Description: A bull moose munches on tree limbs in the snow near Palmer, Alaska. Moose are tall,
long-legged and heavy-bodied animals. They stand six to seven feet tall at the withers and can rest or
sleep standing upright. On average, males, also called bulls, weigh around 1400 pounds, and females,
called cows, weigh around 950 pounds. Distinguishing physical characteristics include large, widely
spaced ears, a large drooping nose with prehensile muzzle, a "bell" or dewlap on the throat, and a small
tail. The subspecies found in Alaska, the tundra moose (Alces alces gigas). Moose depend more on
their acute senses of hearing and smell to detect activity around them then they do on their vision. They
exhibit monoscopic vision that necessitates bodily compensation (moving of the head and rolling the
eyes) to assess objects at close range. Antlers play a key role in visual signaling in moose, over long
distances and in open landscape, antlers can very effectively reflect light, especially when their velvet is
shed in the fall.
This print is treated with an ultra violent protective coating. It will be rolled and inserted into a mailing
