Facts about Reindeer

  • Reindeer and caribou are actually the same animal. What you call them just depends on where you live. In North America, they’re called caribou when they’re wild and reindeer when they’ve been domesticated. In Europe and Asia, the animals are mainly all domesticated, so they call them reindeer.
  • Reindeer mainly live in Canada, Alaska, Greenland, northern Europe, and northern Asia. Their natural habitat is tundra, mountains, and woodland.
  • Reindeer are completely covered with hair, including on their noses and feet. The hair on their noses helps warm the air they breathe from the cold climates they live in. The hair on their feet helps them walk on ice, mud, and snow.
  • Reindeer live on a diet of plants. They like to eat leaves, lichen, and fungi.
  • Reindeer have long legs that help them walk great lengths. They can travel around 23 miles per day and migrate more than 621 miles (1,000 kilometers). That’s the longest migration of any land mammal, other than gray wolves.
