Moose

Alces alces

Description:

Moose in a marshy habitat created by springs

Habitat:

South Saskatchewan River Valley...so riparian

Notes:

The treeless grasslands north of Medicine Hat would be the last place one would expect to encounter them but.... This pair was very close to Prairie Coulees Natural Area.

Another welcome to Project Noah Mark, and congratulations, your moose are our Spotting of the Day:

"Spotting of the Day! We love this image of moose (Alces alces) taken in marshy grassland north of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Moose use a vast range of habitats to sustain their living. They use aquatic habitats to forage for nutritious plants. Found in Canada, Alaska, New England, the Fennoscandian Peninsula, the Baltic states and Russia, moose are the largest and heaviest extant species in the deer family (Cervidae)".

This year Project Noah's wildlife photo competition has an emphasis on habitat. It runs till December 31st 2018. Check it out: https://buff.ly/2zmhIp1
