Reindeer don't fly but they do sometimes have red noses!

Here are some interesting facts about these animals:

  • Reindeer or in North America called 'caribou' are the only species in which the females also grow antlers in order to defend food in small patches of cleared snow.
  • In colder climates the increase in blood flow in the nose will help keep the nose's surface warm, so that the air gets warm too before it gets to their lungs.
  • Golden eagles are the leading predator of caribou calves in the late spring and fall.
  • Caribou migrate over 3,000 miles in a year, more than any other land mammal.
  • Some subspecies have knees that make a clicking noise when they walk so the animals can stay together.

I'll be searching for caribou here in Alaska this summer up north. Followed and upvoted!


Wish you the best trip up to the north! can't wait to see your photos and read your words about your experiences!

Beautiful photograph bertokandi 👏 Female growing antlers is a good, impressive one... I know a useful fact about their beard- it drains the rain/snow water from their neck, so that the neck doesn't get frozen! I am totally amazed by their adaptation and am a big fan :)


hey thanks for sharing this fact, i'm amazed by them too!



The things you learn on your travels through steemit. We have caribou in Canada but they are way up North:)


and +1 fact: in animal symbolism reindeer means 'the outsider', a sensitive soul who can never fit in the world.

Good photo! Follow for you ;)

Awesome shot, and cool colors! Resteemed!
