The reindeer, known as the caribou in North America (Rangifer tarandus), is an extremely widespread species of deer, found all across the Arctic regions of North America and Eurasia.

Reindeer are unique from other speces of deer because both the bucks and the does have antlers. Reindeer are domesticated in Scandinavia by the Sami people, also known as the Lapps. They are used for pulling sleds and carriages, and are used as meat and their milk is consumed by the Sami. Reindeer are also domesticated in North America by the Eskimos.
