5 Santa’s Reindeer Male Or Female


Santa has nine reindeer that fly and pull his sleigh around the world. They all have male names and are called Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen and are led by the red nosed Rudolf. Now, this may well seem like a bit of a silly question, after all, all of Santa’s reindeer have male names. Are Santa’s reindeer male or female? Well, it appears as though Santa’s reindeer might very well all be female reindeer’s, not male at all. The reason that Santa’s reindeer are female is because of their antlers.

Why are Santa’s reindeer female and not male?

Reindeer, along with caribou are the only breeds of deer where the male, female and calves produce antlers. However the male reindeer will shed their antlers at the beginning of winter, and most of them will have lost them by mid December. While it is possible for a male reindeer to retain their antlers until December 24, and possibly as late as January, it is not the norm. The females on the other hand will only shed their antlers after they have given birth in spring.  So that would mean that all of Santa’s reindeer, including Rudolf are females, and possibly pregnant while on their journey around the world.

Now, just for argument sake. Could it be possible that Santa has discovered a way to stop the male reindeer’s antlers from falling off? Considering that Santa is able to not only make reindeer fly, but also deliver presents to children around the world in only one night, making male reindeer antlers stay on throughout winter must be an easy task by comparison.
