The Majestic Moose
The moose (North America) or Eurasian elk (Europe), Alces alces, is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmate antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a dendritic ("twig-like") configuration. Moose typically inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Moose used to have a much wider range but hunting and other human activities greatly reduced it over the years. Moose have been reintroduced to some of their former habitats. Currently, most moose are found in Canada, Alaska, Scandinavia and Russia. Their diet consists of both terrestrial and aquatic vegetation. The most common moose predators are wolves, bears, and humans. Unlike most other deer species, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds. Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, moose can become aggressive and move surprisingly quickly if angered or startled. Their mating season in the autumn can lead to spectacular fights between males competing for a female.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo offers a side profile of a bull moose as it makes its way through a forest clearing. In this tranquil wintry setting, the moose is rendered in stunning detail – from its thick fur to the majesty of its antlers, its features are etched in great detail. The dark-coloured moose is scarcely troubled by the snow-covered terrain as it descends a gentle incline amidst snow-clad trees in the background. In the obverse her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England, in profile.
