Yakutia Moose

Alces alces pfizenmayeri

Other names are mid-Siberian moose and Lena moose. Called elk (or elch) in Asia and Europe.

DESCRIPTION A good-sized moose that is roughly the size of those in British Columbia, Canada. Males stand 88-94 inches (225-240 cm) at the shoulder and weigh 1,250-1,365 pounds (570-620 kg), sometimes more. Females are considerably smaller. The chromosome number is 70, the same as in other east Asian moose and North American moose.

General coloration is darker than in European moose. The upper body and neck are grayish-brown, with throat and underparts blackish. The back and lower parts of the legs are usually light brown, but sometimes blackish. There is a distinct seasonal color change. Colors are more intense in August, becoming lighter and grayer, with more contrast, in winter and spring. The dewlap or "bell" is larger than in European moose, the muzzle is longer and greatly swollen, and the bare spot at its tip is pear-shaped or T-shaped. The antlers are often large and massive, with good palms and many short tines, and may weigh considerably more than 44 pounds (20 kg); however, in some areas antlers of the cervine type may also be found, with branched points only.

HABITAT The northern coniferous (taiga) forest. Favors mixed forest and open ground, especially near lakes and rivers.

DISTRIBUTION From the Yenisey River eastward throughout the rest of Siberia, except for the ranges of the Chukotka and Amur subspecies. Extends marginally into northern Mongolia. (Note: Some authorities believe the moose of Mongolia and the Lake Baikal region of Russia are of the Amur subspecies, but we follow Heptner, et al. in treating them as Yakut moose.

REMARKS Yakut moose with palmate antlers should be measured by Method 25 P, those with cervine antlers by Method 25 C.
