The Svalbard reindeer - a very interesting and iconic species. Captured on last weeks assignment for @olympuscameras About 10.000 years ago, during the last ice age, Svalbard and the whole arctic was covered in thick glaciers connecting the archipelago with Canada and Greenland. The reindeer traveled across the ice and ended up in Svalbard. Once the glaciers decreased again, the animal was left on the islands and had to adopted to its cold and harsh environment. Their stocky appearance, sometimes fat and short legs is a result of this evolution and letโ€™s the reindeer survive as the only large grazing mammal in the European arctic.
