Well adapted to the cooler climates of northern Canada and Alaska, the caribou is a relatively large mammal that densely populates the ecosystems in which its found. Caribous are extremely fast and can reach speeds of up to 50 mph (80 km/h), which helps them elude predators.
Scientific Name: Rangifer tarandus caribou
Characteristics: You might think that only the males have antlers, but in many caribou species this is not true – females have antlers as well! Fantastic as toys, tools in a classroom, as additions to a wildlife figurine collection, and much more, all of our models are hand-painted and crafted with the utmost attention to detail.
