Meet Maple – the Calgary Zoo’s newest addition. Maple is only a five-month old female who arrived at the zoo back in May as a rescue animal and is now settling into her new habitat at he northern entrance to Canadian Wilds.
General Curator, Colleen Baird says Maple weighed only 17.5 kg when she first arrived earlier this year and has grown to now more than 100 kg and they are delighted to have the sweet little moose as part of their family.
Moose are the largest member of the deer family and their antlers can span up to 5-feet and weigh up to 65-pounds.
You can meet Maple the moose today at 12:30 pm at the Canadian Wilds in the Calgary Zoo.
