A rare white moose is seen in Gunnarskog, Varmland, Sweden on July 31st. 

 A white moose (called an elk in Europe) is very rare: Fewer than 100 are known to live in the area, according to the BBC. Regardless of what you call it, this majestic animal is definitely beautiful.

Nilsson’s video of the moose has been shared more than 10,000 times on Facebook, and he is proud.

“It was an experience to meet such a stately animal up close,” Nilsson told The Local.
