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:
An adult moose has few enemies, but a pack of wolves can be a threat, especially for females with calves.
Siberian tigers and brown bears can kill moose, but bears more often take a cadaver killed by wolves or they kill young calves.
In North America, black bear and cougar are significant predators of calves during the period May to June.
Killer whales have also been documented to kill moose.
The giraffe has a 2 meter long neck and can weigh up to 2 tons.
The Romans, who early in the history began to hunt giraffes, called it camelopardalis to its appearance reminiscent of both camel and leopard. The name giraffe comes from the Arabic zarāfa which means "sweet" or "lovable".
The fish in the wooden bucket:
- Hi there! Look at the guy over there. He has deceived me! Please call the police! He promised me gold and green pastures if I followed him here. But now he fillet my buddies and says that I am fish guts!
The fisherman cleaning fish:
- That's just a fish story. Don't try to fool people. Maybe you should be a politician.
