brown, and even mixed - one eye brown, one blue. This is called bi eyes. Sibe's can also have something referred to as Parti-eyes. Meaning one eye has more than one color in it.
Another big difference between a Siberian Husky and an Alaskan Malamute is their size. Malamutes are a larger breed, ranging in size from 23 inches tall, weighing around 75lbs for a female, and 25 inches tall weighing 85lbs for a male. Whereas the Siberian's general sizes range in the area of about 20 - 22 inches tall and 35 - 50lbs for a female. 21 - 24 inches tall and 45 - 65lbs for a male. Keep in mind size and height can vary, though not a great deal. The size difference between a husky and a Mally highly contributes to where they differ in working and/or pulling sleds, which I explain in part 2.
Next week, we will continue our series on the differences between a Siberian Husky and an Alaskan Malamute. There was just FAR too much to cover in one post, so I do hope you will stay tuned and learn some more about 2 amazing breeds next Saturday. Thanks for coming by and spending part of your weekend with us. And a shout out to Dmitriy for sharing his beautiful Malamute with us.
