Grand Manan Caribou

Caribou were probably a common site on the New Brunswick landscape after the retreat of glaciers. Woodland caribou were still living here in the early 1900s. The New Brunswick Museum has two antlers in its fossil collection that were dredged from the seafloor near Grand Manan Island. The fossils have not been dated are but are likely postglacial, less than 10,000 years old.
