Description: Alaskan reindeer are gentle animals. This reindeer is looking for a handout of
food. The reindeer is about 4 feet (1.2 m) tall at the shoulder and is about 6 feet (1.8 m) long.
Unlike most other types of deer, both bulls (males) and cows (females) have antlers. The antlers
are shed each year and regrow. Reindeer have very wide hooves, a broad muzzle, and thick brown
fur. The thick fur traps air, which insulates the reindeer from the cold and helps the reindeer float in
water. The reindeer coat has two layers of fur, a dense woolly undercoat and longer-haired
overcoat consisting of hollow, air-filled hairs. The outer coat is buoyant to the point that a full third
of the animal is always above water. Reindeer are ruminants, having a four-chambered stomach.
They eat the leaves of willows and birches, as well as sedges and grasses.
This print is treated with an ultra violent protective coating. It will be rolled and inserted into a
mailing tube. It will be mailed first class by the U.S. Postal Service and insured.
