Moose Monday....Dewlap Winner of the Week! Anchor Point Alaska

What is a Dewlap you might ask.... well a Dewlap looks like a beard .... This guy has an extreme dewlap....

 Moose Monday....Dewlap Winner of the Week! Anchor Point Alaska

The official definition would be a fold of hair-covered skin called a "dewlap" or "bell" under the chin

Hi Debra - So in a way, this guy is the ZZ Top of the moose world. What a great view from the deck!

ZZ Top the Moose.  Too funny.  I can't imagine seeing these guys from my deck.  I cringe when people mention moose hunting.  Poor things.

Debra,

Oh my!  This one has to be careful not to step on his dewlap!  

Now this one is moving from ZZ to the top of the list!   AA-moosing (pronounced "amazing") photos worthy of a feature at Moose Monday!   Thanks for sharing these.   :)
