Alaska, Canada and Greenland. In Alaska and Canada, they particularly
inhabit forests and the tundra.

[fall] when they move south.
The Reindeer's thick coat is water-proof. Reindeer live in cold
places because in warmer climates they will lose their coats.
They eat grass, lichens and plants; they need to eat twelve pounds
of food a day. If their plants are covered with snow they will shovel or
dig with their hoofs.
Reindeer's enemies are wolves, coyotes and bear which might prey on
the new born because they are weaker. Reindeer may live for some 15

Just then they saw a minor communist party official walking toward them.
'Let's not fight about it,' the man said, 'let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether
it's officially raining or snowing.'
As the official approached, the husband stopped him and asked, 'Tell us,
Comrade Rudolph, is it officially raining or snowing?'
'It's raining, of course,' he answered and walked on. But the woman
insisted: 'I know that felt like snow!' To which the man quietly replied:
'Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!'
