Moose

Bull (male) moose are the largest living members of the deer family. Only the bulls carry antlers which are typically palmate, or shaped like an open hand. Known as moose in North America, the same species in Europe is called the European elk. Their distribution is described as circumpolar, as they are found near both the North and South Poles. This specimen is in the Peel collection and was shot near the River Tabusintac. The photos show it in the gallery before RAMM’s redevelopment, being delivered to site and still wrapped having been installed in the new gallery.
