Alces alces gigas
the world's largest member of the deer family. Unlike their deer relatives, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds.

What most struck me about this animal besides its strength and size is how fast it moves. What took us hours to navigate across dense alder thickets, the moose moved through in moments.
