The Mountain Caribou is a subspecies of Caribou native to the high-altitude, boreal forests and tundra of North America. They are known for their impressive antlers, which can grow up to six feet in length, and their large hooves, which enable them to traverse rough terrain.

Mountain Caribou are unique in their preference for mountainous terrain and old-growth forests. They also have larger hooves which assist in navigating snowy mountain slopes, and they tend to have a darker coat compared to other subspecies.
Their primary habitat is in the mountainous regions of British Columbia and Alberta in Canada, as well as some parts of the northern United States.
Habitat loss due to logging, development, and other human activities, combined with predation and disturbances, have led to a significant decline in their numbers. Consequently, they're considered at risk.
During winter, they primarily feed on tree lichen found in old-growth forests. In the summer, their diet shifts to include grasses, herbs, and shrubs.
Their large hooves not only provide better traction on snowy slopes but also act as snowshoes, distributing their weight and preventing them from sinking deep into the snow.
Adult males, or bulls, can weigh between 350-400 pounds, while females, or cows, typically weigh between 180-260 pounds.
Yes, the rut, or mating season, occurs in the fall. Males compete with each other using their antlers to win mating rights with females.
While not as migratory as some other caribou subspecies, Mountain Caribou do undertake seasonal movements between their winter and summer habitats.
Wolves are the primary predator, but cougars and bears also pose a threat, especially to calves.
