Nicole Leblanc and her husband Maurice, a couple from northern Ontario, Canada, were traveling to Foleyet the other day when they came upon an amazing sight.

On the Canadian Highway 101, it was a calm morning with no traffic, when suddenly Nicole spotted two lovely animals in front of her.

A pair of rare white moose was crossing the highway right in front of this couple, who couldn’t watching these beauties.

Thankfully, they captured the rare sight on camera and the footage went viral. “People are amazed,” the couple said. “It’s not every day that you get to see it and I was able to tape it … it’s a beauty to see!”

Although sights of white moose are pretty common in Canada, there’s always a blessing to encounter these special creatures, also known as “spirit” or “ghost” moose.

Apparently, unlikely of other white moose spotted in the northern wilderness, these two – first spotted in 20018 – don’t suffer of albinism as initially thought.

It turns out that a recessive gene known as the Armstrong White Gene Strain is responsible for their pristine white coat. Leucism was the result, not albinism. This causes some pigmentation to be lost. A white moose is a sight to behold in any case.
