Caribou Thunder: The migration of the Alaskan caribou is a very distinct behavioral trait. Their migration is thought to be one of the most impressive wildlife phenomena, migrating in herds that are tens of thousands in size. When the caribou run simultaneously, their massive herd size creates the sound of thunder.
