The American bison is the largest mammal in North America. Males can stand up to two meters high and weigh more than a tonne!
Caribou are different from other members of the deer family because both the females and the males have antlers. Three types of caribou live in Canada.
No other butterfly species migrates like the North American monarch. Every year, it covers 5,000 km—the longest migration of any butterfly.
Nicknamed the “sea canary” because of its high-pitched chirps and whistles, the beluga whale is found in Arctic waters as well as in the St. Lawrence.
