Woodland Caribou Calf, Newfoundland 05

Description : The woodland caribou is just one of four subspecies found in Canada and Alaska.
Caribou are considered a primitive species of the deer family because of several physiological traits. The most obvious is that both males and females bear antlers. Caribou have wide hooves specially adapted for walking on tundra and muskeg. Their circulatory systems are adapted for preserving heat in winter, and fat deposits prevent their feet from becoming stiff in extreme cold.
