The only mammals other than polar bears found on the archipelago are arctic fox and Svalbard reindeer. The later deserves special attention, as it is a unique subspecies of reindeers, endemic to Svalbard. They are lighter and shorter than the reindeers on the mainland. You can often see Svalbard Reindeer roaming the streets of Longyearbyen looking for shrubs under the snow.
