At this time of year, we hear a lot about magical reindeer that pull Santa’s sleigh.  But the regular reindeer that live in the Arctic don’t fly.  They just eat, drink, walk, run, poop, and do everything else mammals do.  Also known as caribou, reindeer live in cold northern places like Canada, Finland, Siberia, and Alaska, although thousands of years ago they lived as far south as Tennessee (in the U.S.) and Spain (in Europe).  They are one of the bigger types of deer, with the males weighing 400 pounds and even the females topping 250 pounds.  They’re also incredibly strong and are in fact used by people to pull sleighs…and if they could fly, they could probably pull an even heavier one.
