WAS RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER MISNAMED?

Females cast their antlers in spring, growing them back in time for winter when they need their antlers to compete with other females over holes they dig in the snow to reach lichens and to provide food for their offspring. The males cast their antlers in the autumn. ¬†Therefore, it is highly unlikely that Rudolph was a male reindeer, and probably all nine of Santa’s reindeer were female. (Besides, females are best with directions…)

HAPPY HOLIDAYS !
