Description: This is a young male reindeer located at North Pole, Alaska. This is a unique example of Alaska's fauna because once a year it is capable of flight. Evolutionary biologist attribute this unique evolutionary adaptation to a build up of methane gas in the animals stomach. When the gas reaches a critical limit, the animal's density becomes less than air. This phenomena occurs near the winter solstice and lasts for roughly 24 hours. After that time, the reindeer naturally releases the gas and gently returns to Earth. This unique attribute of the reindeer has inspired many interesting tales from cultures around the world.
