Why Visit Reindeer Ranch?
The purpose of this whole Reindeer Ranch is to make travelers learn about the real animals. That is hard to see in real life. All we have seen in stories but don’t believe they exist in reality or not, but they do exist. Also, during the spring season, you will see a cute moment, you will see some of the female Reindeers carry calves in their tow.
There Is Something About Reindeers!!! Do you know Reindeers have UV vision? No? well, they do have that insight!!! When the sun passes through the snow and reflects on their lichen, they can see this through the snow. Isn’t it beautiful? However, they can’t see a person wearing sunscreen because of their UV vision. The second beautiful yet proactive thing they got is their hollow hair. Since they live in a cooler place, their hollow hair saves them from the colder climate. Plus, you can get closer to Reindeers as they don’t kick or bite humans because of their friendly nature.
