The research paper “Arctic-Adapted Dogs Emerged at the Pleistocene-Holocene Transition” was published in SCIENCE on June 26, 2020 using the image “THE LEADER OF THE PACK” from Ilulissat, West Greenland. The image was shot in 2014 when Carsten Egevang joined local hunters on a 4-day dog sled trip for hunting into the interior parts of Ilulissat Icefjord UNESCO World Heritage Site. On the trip, temperatures dropped rapidly, freezing icicles on the dog’s fur. As one of the sledges were about to pass the sled with Carsten on it, he took off his gloves despite the bitter cold and went for his camera to capture this amazing photo.
