Let’s find out some more about these very special animals which Santa depends on to pull his sleigh!

Reindeer live in Greenland, Scandinavia, Russia, Alaska and Canada. Reindeer are migrating animals, which means they move from one place to another – from north to south in the winter, and from south to north in the summer. They travel up to 5,000 kilometres a year, the longest distance travelled by any land mammals. So they are perfect for the job of pulling Santa’s sleigh! They can run as fast as 80km per hour. They have broad hoofs which help them to walk in the snow. 16
