A fine and handsome bison

A fine and handsome bison Posted by Picasa

He's just walking alongside the road. He's very healthy and beautiful. We saw quite a bit of wildlife in the Yukon Territory. It's awesome to see then animals. We've seen porcupine, elk, caribou, reindeer, bear, deer, a lynx (I was the only one to see the lynx), mountain goats, wild horses even.

What's the difference between a caribou and a reindeer I wondered. Genetically they are identical, but reindeer are domesticated which causes them to grow larger.
