Wwwoooowwww!!!!!!! I wonder if the size gets messed up looking at the road. Maybe it is a bike path or 4 wheeler road and not a car road IDK

Yes it is real, it's also good photography.
It was taken at a low (probably a Squatting) level thus creating the illusion of a much bigger moose.
Great pics...Thanks for sharing

I saw this on another website and was also wondering if this could be real...b/c I mean I no experience with moose what so ever and those trees do look a little young? so are moose that tall compared to the young trees?

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

An Adult moose measures approx. 42 - 48 inches that's 3-1/2 to 4 feet at the Hind Quarters.
The Front shoulders will measure between 5 and 6 feet.

If I were to guess I would say this Bull can probably grow another 4 to 6 inches at the shoulder before it's fully grown.

Females average 600 - 800 lbs.
Males average 850 - 1180 lbs. BUT are often harvested at heavier than average weights.

It must just be the angle then, because that moose looks about 7 ft at the hind quarters to me. Ha Ha
