Did Reindeer Fly With Santa to The Zoo?

Starting Saturday and running to New Year's, people can see reindeer at the San Francisco Zoo. Although, you can't pet the reindeer, you get a very close view at them the zoo.

Reindeer range from 3 to 5 feet tall, 150 to 200 pounds, and antlers 3 to 4 feet across. Did you know that reindeer are a part of the caribou family?

Reindeer live in Sweden, Russia, Mongolia, Alaska, and Canada. Reindeer have the same antlers every year, even though they shed their antlers. Their antlers grow the same way every year. No two reindeer have the same antlers. Reindeer are farmed to eat their meat.

Below is video to celebrate both the holidays and the reindeer visiting our city.
