The Christmas season brings out all types of animals. While some of the most common wildlife you see in the fall and winter is squirrels, skunks and bats, you can also spot a reindeer or moose! You will see reindeer yearlong, depending on your home’s area.
Some people have reindeer as domesticated animals, while others only observe during the winter (specifically around Christmas time) and you may be wondering what to leave out for the animals to eat! Of course, reindeer are much too large to invade your home, so you shouldn’t worry about that.
In the spring, reindeer will eat mostly grass and leaves. In the winter, reindeer will be looking for dried leaves and moss. This is easy enough for the reindeer to find in many areas, as fall brings leaves to the ground.
Moose are in the same family as the reindeer, and often eat the same thing like grasses and plants. Sometimes, they will eat the bark off of trees if they can’t get to the plants in a body of water. Moose are the most active in the fall, so keep your eyes open for a sighting!
