A reindeer is a fur covered animal. Reindeer look like the animals that are said to pull Santa’s sleigh, but they don’t have shiny noses, and they can’t fly!
Reindeer are often called caribou. In some parts of the world they are called reindeer. In other parts they are called caribou. In some places they will even call them caribou if they are wild, and reindeer if they are tame. Most scientists agree that there is no real difference between the caribou and the reindeer.
