Moose

Moose

Though moose are not known for good eyesight as they are nearsighted, they have a keen sense of smell and very acute hearing which warns them of approaching danger.

I've tracked moose many times through various snow conditions and it's extremely hard to stalk into close camera range and go undetected. This cow moose quickly turned her head as she detected an approaching bull at least a minute before I saw it striding through the forest at a good clip (pictured in the last issue). Their large ears funnel in much more sound waves than humans.
