Why is the moose wearing sunglasses when not facing the sun?

Once we're at it... Is he wearing sunscreen. How about the fly? Does the fly wear sunglasses?

UV light can cause damage even when you're not facing the sun. In an ideal world (like coderanch ), moose should wear sunglasses on sunny days and flies should also be provided with something equivalent

I think the moose's remaining eye is glass, and the fly has been blind for years.

If that's the case, then the fly must be using echolocation or some other clever strategy to locate the nostril.

Surely the moose uses scent to locate the fly, which it then inhales.

He's got a lot of fur. I think he's good.
 
Look! I laid an egg! Why does it smell like that? Tiny ad, does this smell weird to you?
