Yesssss! This is basically what is happening in my brain, and I suspect many others’ brains, when I walk through a museum. I am guessing this series will basically be Night At The Museum, only with far less Ben Stiller and much more science.
Anyway, talking about this episode, moose mating sounds like something I would not want to get in the middle of. And thanks to this video, I will never unhear the female moose moan. But wow is it interesting.
