Bull Moose, Bighorn National Forest, Wyoming
I was curious about the white substance on the antlers of this moose. There is a website called all-about-moose.com, and it's owner, Mark is very helpful. Through Mark I learned from Dr. Vince Crichton, Wildlife Biologist, that these white markings are called marbling. It's exact cause is unknown, but it's fairly common.
