DESCRIPTION

They are also called reindeer. They migrate north in the summer, travelling more than 600 miles to the tundra. The females (cows) leave weeks before the males who follow with the calves. They have large hooves that help them support the animals weight and that help them paddle efficiently through water. The underside of the hoof is hollowed like a scoop, which is used for digging through the snow in search of food. The males have antlers and so do most females (this is the only deer species where the female can have antlers).
