What kind of wildlife will you find in Alaska?

Alaska is popular for its astounding array of wildlife. Due to the size of the state and the differences in terrain and geography, you’ll find animals of all shapes and sizes. In the southeastern part of the state you’ll be inundated with coastal creatures like whales, porpoises, sea otters, sea lions, hundreds of species of birds, and many other marine mammals among a wide array of marine life. On land you’ll find a huge selection of bears, including the Grizzly, the black bear, and the blue bear. The interior of the state is filled with moose, black and brown bear, wolves, Dahl sheep, and more. The northern part of the state is most famous for their polar bear, and you can also spot the snowy owl, caribou, and many tiny tundra creatures.

What is the most dangerous animal you’ll find in Alaska?

Although you would think that the imposing Grizzly or polar bear would be the most dangerous animal in Alaska, it is in fact the moose that holds the number one spot. While normally less dangerous than bears in terms of aggressive behavior, the sheer number of moose in Alaska outnumber bears by 3 to 1. And because moose are especially aggressive towards dogs, the incidence of moose attacks through trampling are high, and wound between 5-10 people in the state annually.
