Moose In Alaska Playing Wind Chimes With Its Head

May 19, 2016


This is a video from Healy, Alaska of a moose playing a home's wind chimes with its head. I can't tell if it's trying to scratch its face or just likes the sound, but that moose is really going at it. Are wind chimes considered an instrument? Let me Google that. *Googles* Yes, they are. This moose is a way better musician than anybody at the last open mic I went to. You were allowed to play music or do stand-up and I just stood up there sweating and stuttering and spilling my drink. You know I've played an instrument with my face before. It was a piano, and my front eight teeth are all fake now. "They look like painted cardboard." Yeah well real fake teeth are expensive.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Rebecca, who agrees way more musical instruments should be played with the head.

    If you wouldn't mind turning that camera to the right 90 degrees, that would he great.

    Humans became sentient when we evolved the pre-frontal cortex which was capable of understanding and creating complex abstract thought in the form of creativity, such as music and art.

    Creativity is the sign of sentience.

    I believe this warrants further testing. It's not like Moose have small brains, they may well be as intelligent if not moreso than dogs and there're people running around with rifles killing them because they feel like it.

    Give that thing a row of single wind chimes, each with a different note and let us observe what happens over a 3 month period.

    Wonder if he's got a mineral deficiency of some sort he's trying resolve by putting it in it's mouth...

    Perhaps the moose was hungry for something else....perhaps some ear candy.

    What a tink deficiency?! :D... because it kinda sounds like zinc. I dunno.

    You can't see it but I down voted you. With prejudice.
