Ever wondered why Santa chose Reindeer to pull his sleigh?
Our Community Partner @cpaws_nab drops some Christmas knowledge for you!
Did you know that some of Santa's reindeer live in Alberta's boreal forest? (Okay you caught me they're really woodland Caribou)
Regardless these boreal species are great at surviving harsh winters. Probably why Santa chose these guys to safely deliver your presents on Christmas eve!
They can smell food under meters of snow and even have built in snowshoes with their wide spread hooves that make them awesome at traversing through deep snow!
Thanks to @caribou4ever for the photo. Check them out to learn more, and help protect Santa's reindeer! .
