There are only 100 ‘spirit moose’ in Sweden, making this sighting truly special.
Nature lover Hans Nilsson did a double-take on August 11 when he stumbled upon a pure white moose in Varmland County, Sweden. The rare and exquisitely-beautiful animal is only one of a reported 100 to be in existence out of a population of approximately 400,000 in this country.
As you’re about to see, Nilsson captured this looker taking a quick dip, shaking off, and enjoying a light snack.
“When I shot the video everything fell into place: the location, the light and the calmness,” Nilsson told the Local, a Swedish newspaper. “It was an experience to meet such a stately animal up close.”
This is the second white moose video to come out of Sweden this summer, and as you can imagine, both are going viral.
An animal as regal as this deserves a place on the bucket list. So who’s ready to fly to Sweden and begin searching?!
