ABSTRACT
Caribou, an American reindeer ranging from Maine to British Columbia and northward. A few also inhabit northern Idaho. With the exception of the musk ox, the caribou ranges farther north than any other hoofed animal. Caribou feed on various types of plants. The woodland caribou is a swift, grayish or brownish animal. Its height, at the shoulder, is about 3 � feet (slightly more than 1 m). The antlers, which are borne by both sexes, are flattened somewhat like those of a moose. Woodland caribou are endangered.
