This, unfortunately, was not my picture but sent to me by a friend in Labrador, Canada. While I cannot verify the authenticity, I looked at it very closely, and they certainly are moose! What an unbelievable photo???

If they were all that colour, it would make them easier to see on the highway at night!

A few years ago I heard about a deer (in Pennsylvania, I think) that had a coat containing white hairs that caused it to show up brightly in headlights at night, but in daylight it looked brown. Someone suggested it was evolution at work, because so many deer get hit crossing roads in the dark. I have not seen any glow-in-the-dark deer myself.

June, you are so correct! So many times when driving from Nova Scotia to Labrador to catch a float plane to go trout fishing into interior Labrador, and Southern Quebec, we just missed running into these Newfoundland "speed bumps" . Cheers!
