Re: Cool vids...again.

I just love watching Moose being unstoppable forces of pure muscle.

Re: Cool vids...again.

This video is an older one but I think about it quite often.

There are trains with plows to clear tracks that are awe-inspiring in their power. But the only reason we have them is that a moose can't be bothered to clear tracks for us (and in fact considers such paths to be optional in the first place).

Oh yeah, the video was just so this technically qualified to post in the Cool Videos thread since I couldn't be bothered to find the photos thread tongue

The snow plow one is my go-to for anyone that's like "A moose is just like a big deer right? Big woop."

But watching a Moose just run through a couple feet of water like it's nothing is also a new solid contender.

Re: Cool vids...again.

Yeah, definitely. I was firmly in "moose is big deer" camp until I saw that video.

I have, I believe, never seen a moose in person.

Yet.

Well, I am 6' 4", and I have to look up to look a moose in the eyes... so you know, adjust accordingly and you'll have an idea.

Yup. I too have been underestimating our moose overlords...

Moose are one of the few animals I've ever been in the presence of that legitimately feel prehistoric; in that everything back then was just a little bit too big and a little too strong and was just that much deadlier than their descendants. Moose are just pure muscle and fuck-you-up-itude.

I love them so much.


From a very very safe distance.

Yeah, definitely wouldn't respond as nicely as other Canadian megafauna.

I have to share this, if only for my sanity. You stumble across a Nyango Star only once and then Youtube is all Nyango Star. I'm not complaining. I just can't dig myself out of this hole.

This is a wow. Nyango Star goes hard. And now I am in the hole with you.

If it's not about musicals, I probably don't know what I'm talking about.

Re: Cool vids...again.

Boter, that might be the most Canadian thing I've ever seen. I'm reminded of a conversation I had with an Australian. The topic of his countries deadly wildlife came up, and his opinion was that North America's wildlife was way scarier. It came down to this: "Yeah, a funnel web can kill me, but I can also kill a funnel web. There's no chance in hell I'm ever winning a fight with a bear or a moose, and if I do get away they don't make an antivenom for 'mauled to death.'"

My favorite bit is when one of the guys goes "Just look how small he is!" "Yeah he's just a little guy."

*BDA looks at the moose.... looks at the guy.... looks at the Moose again*

YEP. /MOOSE/

This video gave me the heebie jeebies but at the same time, it is fascinating. Here's the muscle structure of the iris.
