A Reindeer is a type of deer that is found in the arctic and subarctic regions of the world. They are well adapted to living in these cold climates, with their thick fur coats and wide hooves that help them walk on snow and ice.

Reindeer are herbivores, feeding mainly on lichens, mosses, and other plants that grow in the Arctic. They will also eat berries, leaves, and twigs when they can find them. Reindeer are highly social animals, living in herds of up to several hundred animals.

Reindeer are one of the most commonly seen animals in the arctic, and they are a popular tourist attraction. They are also used as working animals in many parts of the world. For example, they are used to pull sleds in northern Europe and North America.
