Feeding time at a moose ranch

Posted by

I got to feed them! Well, everybody who goes into the ranch on the feeding time can feed the elks... It was great. Yesterday they did eat birch, potatoes and bananas. I would never have guessed that elks like bananas.

Every day you learn something new. After all, it is an old truth. The actual close-up of fine animal.
