Alaska's Northern Lights - 2018

least 15 in residence! The herd is not sustainable until it reaches that level. So these guys & gals (& the young calf) have a few years to go before anything dire happens. Do you know the difference between a reindeer and a caribou? If you don't know, then you may think this is a trick question when I reveal the answer. Actually, they are one and the same creature. The only difference is that the animal is called a "caribou" when it is wild and renamed a "reindeer" when it is domesticated! Other familiar animals live on the lodge acreage as well and we walked around to visit them all: a burro, two goats, chickens, horses and a young cow.
