Twins First Snow
Two newborn moose calves are welcomed into the world by a late spring snowstorm. Female moose will usually bear young after their second or third year. After an eight month gestation they give birth to a single calf, rarely two. Born light-reddish brown, they follow their mother after three days from birth. Moose mothers are fiercely protective of their young and have been known to go to great lengths to protect their calves.
