Alaskan Malamutes are stockier in build than Siberian Huskies. Also, Malamutes most of the time have brown eyes while Huskies sometimes have blue eyes. The main reason a Husky can have brown eyes is if it's a mix and the main reason a Malamute can have blue eyes is if it's a mix.
The Alaskan Malamute and the Siberian Husky have a lot in common, but they are not the same breed.
Malamutes are usually 75-100lbs. Siberians around 50lbs. Mals are the heavy weights. Sibes the light weights. For a Malamute, picture a Siberian on steroids -- bigger, stockier, more muscular, usually shorter tempered. Their muzzles are heavier, their ears set further down the head, and their bones larger. All of these things are relative depending if you are looking at a small Malamute or a large Siberian.
Malamute eyes are brown -- this is important because pet stores mix up AKC papers and people who fake the papers won't back off their claims of blue-eyed Malamutes -- but they are not purebred Malamutes. Siberian eyes can be brown, or blue, or one of each color, or both colors in the same eye.
Malamutes are much larger than a husky and are typically used more for work
