Swedish explorer captures extremely rare white moose on camera after three years of searching for the elusive animal

A video showing an extremely rare white moose in Sweden has captured the world's interest.

Explorer Hans Nilsson spotted the animal after searching for a glimpse of one for three years.

He saw the moose on the banks of a stream in Värmland, Sweden. The video he posted online has been viewed more than a million times on Facebook.

The video shows the moose entering the stream. The water goes up to its neck before it climbs out the other side and shakes its entire body.
