Check out this gigantic moose in Alaska.

The Alaskan moose is a subspecies of the moose we see around Spokane. They’re also known as, you guessed it, giant moose.

On average male Alaskan moose are nearly 7-feet tall at the shoulder and weigh more than 1,400 pounds. The largest ever shot in the Yukon was 7.6 feet tall and 1,806 pounds.

That’s it. Have a good weekend.
