    A Quiz

    Can you tell me the sex of these three moose and how you can be sure? There is enough evidence in the photo to be certain of the sex of each of these moose. Cheers, Chuck

    What makes you think the calves are a male and female?

    Well the one on the left looks to have a brown face and according to something on google males have black faces. As for the other calf , really more of a guess. Can't see the face and on my iPad can't really see much of anything else either, but both Mom and the other calf have a white patch high on the rear which I don't see on the other calf .

    Helen, you get the prize. Those white patches are only on females. The poor little calf in the center doesn't have one. But then as a Canadian I suspect that you have an advantage. Thanks for playing. - Cheers, Chuck
