In my Language Arts for my school I had to write a report about caribou.
Caribou are mammals that look like a moose with smaller antlers or a large deer with big antlers. They are four to twelve feet tall and are four to five feet wide. Their fur color is gray with black, white and brown hide. Caribou hooves are very important. They use them to act as snow shoes when they walk across thin ice and deep snow. Also their hooves
help the caribou break ice and dig in snow. A caribou eats mainly moss and lichens. Caribou mainly live in the tundra of Canada, Alaska, Scandinavia and Siberia. The caribou do not mate for life. Baby caribou stay with their mothers until they are one to two years.
