Everything You Need To Know About Reindeer [VIDEO]
I was watching Christmas movies over the weekend and it got me thinking about everyting Christmas. Let’s start with Reindeer, shall we?From Wikipedia.com;
The proper name for reindeer is Rangifer tarandus. In North America we call them caribou. Reindeer vary considerably in color and size. Both sexes grow antlers, though they are typically larger in males. There are a few populations where females lack antlers completely. Wild reindeer hunting and herding of semi-domesticated reindeer (for meat, hides, antlers, milk and transportation) is important to several Arctic and Subarctic people. Even far outside its range, the reindeer is well known due to the myth, probably originating in early 19th century America, in which Santa Claus’s sleigh is pulled by flying reindeer, a popular secular element of Christmas.
