Have Yourself A Bizarrely Zoological Christmas

You know it's nearly Christmas when the reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) come out! A male individual whose antlers have dropped, photographed by yours truly. Reindeer are pretty bizarre in their own respect considering they're the only deer species to be widely domesticated, they exhibit antlers in both male and female individuals as a probable result of their non-territorial nature, and they have been observed consuming hallucinogenic mushrooms (Amanita muscaria).
I would like to wish a Merry Christmas to all who have graciously read this blog! Thank you for following me throughout my zoological ventures and musings, as I honestly never expected to come this far with my rather infrequent writing. May God bless you and your kin on this holiday.
The photoshopped mess err "official" Bizarre Zoology Christmas card is below...
