All reindeer have antlers, male and female, which makes them different because in most of the deer and elk, only the males have antlers.


Santa's reindeer is not a real story. Male and female reindeer both grow antlers, so if this was a real story, Vixen would have antlers.

They all are. Male reindeer lose their antlers in the fall, while female reindeer keep them until spring, after birthing time. since every picture of Santas reindeer at Christmas shows them with antlers? They are all female.


No, only male deer have antlers although it is extremely rare to have a female deer with antlers. ^^Actually, since all they are REINDEER, they all have antlers. Male and female.

Yes, adult reindeer of both sexes grow antlers and use them to uncover forage under the snow.


Since Santa's Reindeer are typically depicted with antlers, and most male reindeer drop their antlers by December (whilst the females generally retain their antlers), it would be incredibly unusual for none of Santa's reindeer to be female, you'd expect most to be female in fact.

Reindeer antlers are made of BONE.


Both (I am an animal expert, and I am not boasting!).


According to the Alaska Department of Fish & Game, while male & female reindeer grow antlers in summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers in winter -usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers til after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, as ALL of Santa's reindeer are depicted as having antlers, every single one of them HAD to be a female! -We should have known this when they were able to always find their way!


To tell you the truth, nobody knows (I am an animal expert, an I am not boasting)!females are does and does do not have antlers only the male reindeers have antlers


reindeer antlers are used to protect reindeer against predators! ;)


Both males and female reindeer grow antlers, being the only species of the family Cervidae that do so. Male reindeer shed their antlers at the beginning of winter, mid November to late December, while females do not shed their antlers until after delivering fawns in the spring.


No, actually, only both genders of reindeer grow antlers. No other species of deer do.
