In the latest announcement from our local zoo, officials debuted twin moose calves today. They male and female aren't even 2 months old and have been in hiding with their mother until today.
Moose can have up to three calves at a time that each range from 30 to 40 pounds. As adults, they can top 1,200 pounds. There are as many as 8,000 moose living in Minnesota.
Maybe a visit to the zoo will make up for once again failing to spot a wild moose up north this weekend.
