Have you ever seen , a caribou or a reindeer ?There are many differences between reindeer and caribou .Reindeer are smaller and can also be kept as pets. Caribou are even bigger than reindeer and also are wildlife. Did you know reindeer can be found in Greenland ,Canada also in Alaska ? Interestingly reindeer run for 50 miles per hour . A fact is that reindeer mostly live for 15 years . In the winter their nose helps them keep warm . Learning about reindeer bodies is interesting .
Reindeer’s bodies are adapted to the environment . Amazingly male reindeer antlers fall of in the winter . Female antlers fall off when they give birth . Have you ever felt reindeer , fur it is nice and soft like a blanket ! Reindeer hooves are huge and wide and they dig with their hooves .
Have you ever thought what reindeer normally eat ? They usually eat lichen because it keeps their blood warm and its hidden under the snow . If reindeer cant find lichen they look for leaves , fish and grass also mushrooms .
In the Arctic it is always cold and windy . In the summer it is light all day and night but in the winter it is dark all day and night ! Reindeer are in different places like Alaska ,Canada , and Norway.
Reindeer predators are polar bears , grey wolves ,brown bears also golden eagles ! Did you know, wolverines attack reindeer too.
Sadly people hunt for reindeer because of their antlers meat ,skin also fur.
