    Thanks for sharing that one. I saw a nearly white cow moose near Summit Lake South of Cantwell years ago. That has been my only experience with a similar animal.

    I'm new to these forums and was checking some of the older threads out, when I saw your picture. I realized that I saw this same speckled moose, back in 2005 on the Kenai. Here is a pic, it's not very good, but you can tell it's the same moose!

    Default Moose!

    Yep, looks like the same critter! SHe's been around here a long time then. About two weeks ago she was on the front page of the Kenai paper. So she's still around and doing well!

    Default Piebald

    i know back home we use to have alot of deer that would have that splatterig of white on them. In Arkansas they were always called piebald deer. Not fully albino, but definately mixed with one. Definately a rare animal and makes for a great picture!

    Default 'Skewbald' (not a billiards game!)

    Just because it's trivia I happen to know from my genetics days, I thought I'd pass it on.
    'Piebald' is (technically) white with black. 'Skewbald' is white with any color other than black.

    This bit of trivia, is from a kid who grew up in a small community where in my class we had a 'piebald', an 'albino' and a full blown 'hemophiliac' (to name a few)... and I was adopted.

    Is it any wonder I grew to be fascinated with genetics?

    Speckled, splattered - all sound good to me! But 'skewbald?'
    Thanks for capturing the great pics!
