A species that undertakes great migrations each year is the caribou. A diorama features several of them, and even more painted into the background.
From a big species to a small one. There are three small dioramas in this passage, and this is the first one, featuring a collared pika, a small critter of the far north.
The caribou is a beautiful animal. Would be interesting to read more about it.ReplyDelete
Beautiful. Will check if our museum allows visitors...ReplyDelete
The caribou diorama as quite fetching.ReplyDelete
One of the great wildlife migrations I have always dreamed of seeing is of the caribou in our north. I have never done so and at this stage in my life probably never will, unfortunately.ReplyDelete
Sounds crazy, but I didn't know that the reindeer in North America isn't also called caribou!ReplyDelete
Impressive, those caribous.ReplyDelete
@Nancy: they are magnificent.ReplyDelete

A herd of caribou is an amazing sight.ReplyDelete
THEY ARE AMAZING CRITTERS!ReplyDelete
I like your shadow with the flash and the critters behind !ReplyDelete
Nice photos of the exhibit. Caribou antlers are fancier and more commanding than deer antlers.ReplyDelete
Sorta like cari-boo. :-)ReplyDelete

Those pika's are new to me.ReplyDelete
A very northern critter.Delete
William - caribou are majestic. I am especially fascinated by the intricate nature of the antlers! We have seen pikas in Montana and Idaho - they are adorable, and always on the move!ReplyDelete
And squirrels will still be here when everyone else is gone. :-)ReplyDelete
The caribou are beautiful:)ReplyDelete
I think so.Delete
It's quite dramatic. I can only imagine seeing them in person!ReplyDelete
It's quite something.Delete
