There are resident reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) at the San Diego Zoo but I don’t know how many since their habitat is hilly and parts of their habitat are hidden.
Earlier this month one of them was out in full view.
He looked a little ragged after traveling millions of miles on Christmas Eve.
Poor thing. I’d look ragged, too, if I traveled all those miles in just a few hours….
Now he is back at the San Diego Zoo where he can spend the year relaxing and freshening up in preparation for Christmas Eve 2018.
