Svalbard: Alkhornet – Reindeer on the Snow

The Svalbard reindeer subspecies is smaller their Norther America or Norwegian or Russian relatives. Uniquely, they have significantly shorter legs but a furrier coat versus other species. On Alkehornet, there were more then a couple dozen of reindeer roaming around, mostly male with spectacularly large antlers. They preferred the snowy ground that was colder then the green pastures.
