Really Amazing Reindeer

Five fascinating reindeer facts to share with residents!


1. They are so well insulated that if they lie down in a patch of snow, the snow won’t melt around them.

2. They are really good swimmers – their migratory routes mean they often have to cross large expanses of fast-moving water.

3. Their eyes change colour at Christmas – they’re golden in the summer and deep blue in winter.

4. Their antlers can be up to three feet tall.

5. Like a human’s fingerprint, no two reindeer antlers are exactly the same.
