While many associate reindeer with the wonder of the holidays, these animals are magical in their own way. Known in North America as caribou, reindeer are well adapted to live in cold, rugged Arctic regions, like northern Norway where this herd was photographed. They"re built to withstand frigid temperatures with the help of thick, dense fur and noses that warm the air before they breathe it in.
