Photo: Caribou Stag Picture Denali National Park Alaska

Standing atop the hill in Denali National Park in Alaska, USA, this Caribou stag shows the world who is boss with his beautiful rack of antlers.

The brown coloring on this Caribou stag is slowing turning to a white gray hue in preparation for the cold winters which sweep through Denali National Park in Alaska, USA. As this Caribou Stag stands atop the ridge amongst the fall coloring in Denali National Park in Alaska, he is well prepared for rutting season with his massive set of antlers.

The antlers grow from a spot on the top of the caribou stag's skull until they reach their full size when they become very useful in protecting themselves during mating season. Once mating season has ended, the caribou stag will shed its antlers until summer arrives and a new set will then begin to grow.

Rangifer tarandus are the only species of deer where both the female and males grow antlers, but the size of the antlers on the stag are much larger and more complexed than on the females.
