LOL (at me, that is) ~ and thanks! I didn't realize that reindeer and caribou were the same animal!
I assume that caribou is an aboriginal word. Like Fundy Blue, I've never really thought of caribou and reindeer as being the same either. But I guess they are!
But can they fly?Merry Christmas to you and yours!Lisa
Caribou must have gotten the shaft from Santa
You know what's weird? I just like saying the word "Caribou":D
I did not know that! Merry Christmas to you and Daisy! Hope you have a wonderful weekend- Hugs- Diana
The caribou is featured on our 25 cent coins here. Have you seen the movie, The Polar Express? There is a great caribou scene. -Jenn
They brought reindeer across from siberia to the mackenzie delta in the 1930's . They had to be herded and did not mix with the native caribou. It was an interesting experiment that didn't work.
I never knew caribou was reindeer all these years!
I also never thought of them as being the same!

Reindeer are actually much smaller with delicate antlers.
