A Moose? In Europe?


"Moose ...These animals live in the northern United States, Canada and Europe. In North America, they are called moose; in Europe, they are called Eurasian elk."

Yep, they are common in Norway, Finland and Sweden. In fact they are something of a road hazard (but not to a Marder!). Nice idea for a diorama. Could this be the start of a trend, we could have a Tiger with a tiger, Panther with a panther and Puma with a puma (not sure how the geography would work however). A Marder with a pine marten would be a good pair, but the marten is too small an animal in 1/35th!

Geography might not matter since some of those animals could be found in the zoos of large cities caught up in the war. Speaking of animals,, that dog is either very well trained, or has decided it would be really dumb to try and chase a critter 20 times his size.

They're also on the wrong side of evolution as far as I'm concerned...nice dio idea. Nice extra detail, including the skis, water bottle, maps, etc.

I hunt a lot. And about 12 years ago I was hunting in the upper northeast (Massachusetts) for moose (long story short, didn't get one). They are VERY alert animals. They are up and 'ready' with just a sound of a threat. With the sound of an armored tracked vehicle, that moose would've high-tailed it LOOOOONG before the vehicles got there. Even injured they have AMAZING stamina to run.

They're rarely seen resting.
