Young Male Moose
A young male moose (Alces alces shirasi) overwintering in Gilpin County, Colorado. Young moose develop spikes when they are about a year old rather than the paddles seen on larger and older bulls.
Moose - who are not actually native to Colorado - were introduced into the state in 1978 and have proved to be a huge draw for tourists and native Coloradans alike. Some of the best locations for spotting moose in Colorado are Red Feather Lakes, Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake and Brainard Lake Recreation Area.
