Svalbard Reindeers

Yes, again I was so lucky to work at the kittiwake colonies close to Ny-Ålesund, Svalbard (Spitsbergen) and offcourse; I brought my camera. This entry is all about the short legged Svalbard Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus platyrhyncus).

This reindeer is a subspecies of the mainland species Rangifer tarandus and you may only see this on Svalbard, where it appears everywhere the ground is not covered by glaciers. Often enough they come quite close to you.
