The Moose (North America) or European Elk (Europe) (Alces alces) is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a "twig-like" configuration.
Moose Babies! Look at those legs! It is very dangerous to approach a baby moose for two reasons: mother moose IS always nearby and ready to charge and baby moose is a grizzly bear's favorite snack. Photos are much safer! (FYI - Adult Moose are not to be approached either, they can charge & stomp you)
