One day these twin moose calves will grow so large that no animal in the forest will dare challenge them.
But in an absolutely adorable video posted to YouTube by user arcticsooner, the rambunctious pair frolic in a sprinkler with the wild abandon of youth.
While their mother stands watch, the two calves discover the joy of running through a sprinkler. Coincidentally, the woman filming the rare event can be heard talking to her own children.
While the bystanders were careful to keep their distance, it’s important to remember that a mother moose can become quite aggressive if she feels her offspring are in danger. It’s always a good idea to give these powerful creatures plenty of space in the wild—even if that happens to be your own backyard.
