Caribou Puzzle
Adaptations of Caribou

Find the words taken from the paragraph below. Words can go horizontally, vertically and diagonally in all eight directions.

Caribou are deer that have become highly adapted to survival in regions of prolonged snow cover and low temperatures. Unlike the feet of most other deer, theirs have blunt toes, crescent-shaped sharp-edged hooves and functional dewclaws. Also the toes bend almost horizontally and in winter, the feet are covered by a dense growth of coarse hair so that caribou can virtually "float" over the snow on little "bear paw" snowshoes. Other distinctive adaptations to cold and snow are a blunt, fully furred muzzle; valvular nostrils, short, heavily furred ears; a short well furred tail and a compact body covered with a thick coat of hollow guard hairs and a fine crinkly underfur. The coat color of Porcupine Caribou is generally considerably darker than those in the High Arctic and somewhat lighter than the woodland subspecies. Porcupine Caribou are among the smaller sized of the North American subspecies.
