The Woodland Caribou is a rare, medium-sized member of the deer family that is closely related to the reindeer. The genus, species and subspecies of the Caribou are Rangifer tarandus caribou.

Woodland Caribou are found in Canadian forests. These social animals have a life span of about 10-15 years in the wild.

Anatomy: The Woodland Caribou is about 4 feet (1.2 m) tall at the shoulder and is about 6 feet (1.8 m) long. Bulls (males) average 400 pounds (180 kg) and cows (females) average 250 pounds (115 kg). Unlike most other types of deer, both bulls and cows have antlers. The antlers are shed each year and regrow. The Caribou have very wide hooves and a broad muzzle; bulls have a white mane.

Behavior: The Woodland Caribou is an herbivore (a plant-eater) who spends most of the day eating lichens, grass, leaves, and other plant material.
