    Correct Answer
    A. Antlers 
    Explanation
    Male reindeer use their antlers to compete for mating. During the mating season, known as the rut, male reindeer use their antlers to engage in dominance battles with other males. They will lock antlers and push against each other in order to establish dominance and win the right to mate with females. The size and strength of the antlers play a significant role in determining the outcome of these battles, as the male with the largest and most impressive antlers is more likely to be successful in securing mates.

    Explanation
    Reindeer fur can be used in making a pelt because it is thick, warm, and provides insulation against the cold weather. The fur of a reindeer is made up of two layers: the outer guard hairs that repel moisture and the inner layer of soft, dense fur that keeps the reindeer warm. This fur is highly valued for its durability and ability to provide warmth, making it suitable for making pelts.

    Which of these is not a predator to reindeer?

      Snakes

    • C.

      Brown bears

    • D.

      Wolves 

    Correct Answer
    A. Snakes 
    Explanation
    Snakes are not predators to reindeer because they are not equipped to hunt and capture large mammals like reindeer. Snakes typically prey on smaller animals such as rodents, birds, and insects. Reindeer are much larger and faster than the typical prey of snakes, making it unlikely for snakes to be able to successfully hunt and kill them. Therefore, snakes are not considered predators to reindeer.

      Algae 

    • B.

      Lichens 

    • C.

      Tree bark 

    • D.

      Liverwort 

    Correct Answer
    B. Lichens 
    Explanation
    During winter, reindeer eat lichens. Lichens are a type of fungus that grows on rocks, trees, and soil. They are a crucial food source for reindeer during the winter months when other vegetation is scarce. Lichens provide the necessary nutrients and energy for reindeer to survive in cold and snowy conditions. They are able to digest lichens due to a specialized digestive system that breaks down the tough and fibrous structure of these organisms. Therefore, lichens are an essential part of a reindeer's diet during winter.
