Well, a lot has happened in the past few days and there is so much that I can share on. I decided to start with the one thing that I’ve been surrounded with for the last few days… Alaskan Wildlife.
I have seen SO MANY animals! Let me just highlight a few that I’ve had the honor to come face to face with:
For the moose’s entire story, check out my previous post here.

REINDEER or CARIBOU.
These guys were behind the fence at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center . That velvet on their antlers will be gone when it’s time to mate. This is a time when you DO NOT want to meet a reindeer in the wild. If you come between a male and his little lady… you are going to get hurt!
A symbol of America! Majestic, strong and a picture of power.
This thing is a BEAST! I wouldn’t want to meet him in a dark field.
RED FOX: (No, I’m not talking about the guy from Sanford and Son!)
This guy is kicking it in the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center
A large portion of these bison will be reintroduced into Alaskan wilderness in spring of 2015. A species has been revitalized and saved.
These guys are hungry, hungry, hungry. They came running!
Finally, we came face to face with the most terrifying and vicious beast in Alaska…
THE GREAT XANDER BEAR!
