In this week’s episode of Wild Wednesday, WildSafeBC gives us some pointers on how to identify animals of the same species.

The video shows how to identify different moose by looking at a feature called the bell. It’s located below the throat and chin area of both a bull and cow moose.

It’s also referred to as a dewlap and varies greatly in size and shape from moose to moose, according to WildSafeBC.

Check out the video below to see if the animals shown in the video are the same or different in each clip.
