IotD, always documenting the albino animals... so here is your albino moose. Don't know where the pics originated; no further information.

I wonder if this has meaning to the Canadian First People, the same way the White Buffalo for the Plains Indians and the White Deer for the Eastern Woodlands?

I see this guy every day at the Moose Lodge. Drags his feet when he walks.

Soon, natural selection will lead to a moose population that is predominantly white--that is, until that pesky coal plant opens up next door...

Griff 02-14-2009 04:09 PM

just Wow.

I would say, "wow, that's cool!" . . .

but other people have already said it!

I want a stuffed one! a toy, that is . . .

eta: a search of Amazon shows 427 results from "moose" in "toys & games." Four hundred stuffted moosies and moosie toys? And not a single albino in the lot. 'Tho there is a white and gingham checked one; a red, white & green Christmas one, and sock monkey one. hmm.

It does have meaning. Medicine man says "White moose, the other white meat"
