Male Caribou Walking Wildlife Clear
From the Deer Wildlife Clear Collection.
Amazing Moose and Reindeer Wildlife Clear sculpture with very fine details. All engraved and polished by hand.
Caribou hooves are actually quite fascinating. In order to survive the environments, they undergo incredible adaptations. Caribou have very large feet, with four toes, two of which are known as dew claws. The remaining two toes are quite strong and actually help support the Caribou’s weight. In the winter, the hoof pads of the Caribou will shrink. It will expose the rims of the hoof, which help them walk over ice and snow. Long hair will grow between the toes to protect the pads and they will only walk on the hoof rims. Once summertime hits, these footpads will then start to become more sponge-like and soft. It will allow them to cross over different terrains.
The sculpture of Male Caribou Walking is handmade in Sweden and signed on the bottom. Cast crystal sculpture with engraved and sandblasted motif.
