Herd Animal, Reindeer

Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus

Reindeer (also known as caribou in some regions) are a type of herd animal native to subarctic regions. They feed on grass and other scrub during the summer and lichens during the winter. Some northern people have semi-domesticated reindeer and herd them for meat, fur, and milk.
