A mama moose and her brand new calf

A brand new moose calf appeared with his mom at a pond last summer. He was so new that an umbilical cord was hanging from his belly. It is rare to get to see a calf so young.

Check out the video of the pair that includes some sweet moments between them. This was just what I needed in the midst of the coldest part of winter.

  9. Beautiful, every moment, and noses kissing, what a memory to keep. Love the pond there, and those long young legs, still a bit uncertain maybe at the edge of the water.Ditto to Tammy J's words for you today.

  10. Those two are adorable. Do all moose calves have relatively pale fur like that one?

    1. All of the moose calves that I've seen have that paler fur. It turns dark by autumn.

  14. That early close-up: what a view of the 'feathers' around the scent glands on the young'un's hocks! I too am impressed by how steady it is on those gangly legs. Thanks (as always) for sharing!
