Our moose, MaplePie, was inspired by the piebald, or pied, moose that was seen in Newfoundland, Canada back in 2015 and filmed in 2017. Piebald animals are those with a pattern of pigmented spots on a white background.
A beloved icon of Canada, moose are native to Northern Europe, Northern America, the Baltic region and Siberia as well as colder regions of Asia. Moose prefer colder climates with seasonal snow cover and cannot tolerate temperatures above 27 degrees Celsius for long because they do not sweat. Due to this interesting fact, it’s why moose will swim or wade in water to cool themselves off. By wearing MaplePie, may it remind you to ‘stay cool’ when under pressure.
