262 THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Photographs by George Shiras, 3d MIGRATING CARIBOU SWIM SANDY LAKE, NEWFOUNDLAND Because of their heavy coat of long, tubular hairs, caribou ride high in the water, but are not as rapid swimmers as either moose or white-tailed deer. They carry the white tail erect when swimming, as shown here. The animals in the lower photograph are a stag, a doe, and a fawn. About one in two or three female caribou in Newfoundland have antlers. These caribou were so.strictly diurnal in habits that they did not give any opportunity to secure flash-light pictures of them (see, also, text, page 265).
