Don't Laugh at Rudolph Say Swedish Scientists

According Swedish scientists, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer may actually exist!

Thermal imaging cameras reveal that an abundance of blood vessels in reindeer snouts help to retain heat and make their noses more sensitive – important when foraging for food. In extremely cold weather, therefore, their snouts may, indeed, glow a reddish colour, perhaps explaining the origin of the well-loved yuletide song.

Look out for this amazing phenomenon when you meet the herd on our winter activity holidays.
