When we lived in BC, moose were regular visitors to our acreage... bedding down in the thistle patch right beside the house. One fall a momma brought her calf and he was a beautiful silver colour.
Is this colouring very common?
Do they remain silver or change to brown as they get older?
Late Addition: Here are some pictures of the silver moose calf I wrote you about. We lived in the south east corner of B.C. in the Elk Valley between the towns of Sparwood and Elkford.
I can't say that I have ever heard of a silver colored moose.
White moose, yes... even brown with white patched moose, similar in coloring to a pinto horse.
The white and or albino moose are not very common in BC. Although they are here and are scattered across the northern hemisphere.
I don't suppose you have any pictures of the silver moose?
Where in BC did you live? Maybe some of our other website visitors have seen this very different coloring of moose.
Thanks for sharing...
