The majestic moose snorted at me

Moose is a sketch by artist and illustrator Artmagenta

Yesterday I stumbled upon a moose, or to be more exact, the moose stumbled upon me when I was on a birdwatching tour in the nearby forest. A moose or elk as they are called in Europe, is huge. Getting close to a moose makes your heart beat faster.  The moose looked majestically at me for a moment, snorted loudly and then disappeared with long majestic steps.

So of course I had do some moose sketches after this experience:

Killer Whale by ArtMagenta
Killer Whales or Orcas can be nearly 10 meters long and weigh up to 7-8 tons.

Orcas have no natural enemies. Natural habitat is Antarctic and Arctic waters, but it can be found in several waters, among others in the Mediterranean. It prefers coastal, cold water.

Killer whales hunt varied prey. They are sometimes called the wolves of the sea, because they hunt in groups like wolf packs.

The flock usually consists of 5-25 animals, but the animals appear temporarily in groups of up to 150. The group is led by a female.

Why do Raccoons symbolise thieves?

Raccoon by ArtMagenta
Raccoons with their black mask often symbolise thieves and robbers. At least in the comics.

That is not fair to such nice animals.

And frankly, this is no good robber disguise. No robber or thief uses such a mask. They use balaclavas or funny masks when they rob banks.
