Moose And Its Cute Calves Spend A Day At This Family’s Backyard, And The Owner Documented How It Went

This family from Anchorage, Alaska recently has been visited by some unusual, uninvited, but very welcome, guests. Last week, a mama moose and her two calves came over to his backyard. If that wasn’t enough, the moose liked Rydstrom’s grass so much, they decided to spend the day there.

The little buddies taste-tested everything from the chairs to the gates and when they decided the backyard was safe, they snuggled and even took a nap. At one point, their mama even gave them lunch. Rydstrom photographed the entire family trip from inside his home and when it was over, the man uploaded the pictures to the Internet. They immediately went viral, showing that people really needed to see something so innocent and cute during these hard times.

The Alaska Moose is actually the state’s official land mammal and 175,000–200,000 of these hulking critters call The Last Frontier their home.

Interestingly, the Alaska moose are sexually dimorphic, making the males 40% heavier than females. Male Alaska moose can stand over 2.1 m (6.9 ft) at the shoulder, and weigh over 635 kg (1,400 lb). Female Alaska moose, on the other hand, are about 1.8 m (5.9 ft) at the shoulder and can weigh close to 478 kg (1,054 lb). This makes the Alaska moose the largest member of the deer family, are also the largest moose in the world.

Although moose are herbivores, they eat enormous amounts every day. In summer, for example, it will happily munch on 73 pounds of food a day, while in winter it’ll chew on about 34 pounds of scrumptious greens.

Moose are generally not aggressive animals, but they can become incredibly dangerous when provoked. Female moose will not think twice to engage a person if she thinks they’re threatening her young.

People Share “Unwritten Rules” of the Society That Everyone Should Follow, and Here Are 20 of Them

In order for us to function in a healthy society, there’s a set of unwritten rules we have to follow. Those are one of the things that no school teaches you, and at some point, you have to learn that yourself. Some call them good manners, some call them rules, or maybe just common sense.

However you name it, society has a rule book that ‘forces’ people to behave and be good to one another. In order to do that you have to be aware of these “unwritten rules”. Therefore, today we will share some with you.

When you have a complaint with a retail store or business, please remember that the person you are speaking too (or yelling at sadly) is just the one that happened to pick up the phone or is standing at the till. they likely have nothing to do with what went wrong and have little sway in what can be done to help. They don’t need to be yelled and screamed at for something they did not do or is under the control of a corporate office/higher up.- sebastianrileyt2
