Reindeer are medium-sized mammals that lived during the ice ages into the present day.
Thinly-built, reindeer have four long, thin legs with large, flat hooves with which to traverse through ice and snow, a thin neck, long snout, wide ears and a short tail. Atop their heads, reindeer often sport a set of long, many-pronged antlers, which both male and female reindeer sport. Reindeer found in the North Pole had, unlike other reindeer, the ability to fly.
Reindeer were among the creatures that resided in the ice and snow of the ice ages, with a number of them, consisting of one male named Prancer and his family, becoming the driving force behind the magical sleigh of Santa Claus, the magical human that delivered presents.
Behind the Scenes
True reindeer do not have the large horn in the middle of their antlers as shown in the film.
