Porcupine Caribou

Rangifer tarandus granti


Large, beautiful caribou was very restless because of the mosquitoes. It would graze for a few seconds then run to another location. "Their name does not derive from the animal porcupine, but from the Porcupine River which runs through a large part of their range."
