Animal Planet's Reindeer Cam is up for the season. Besides being Santa's helpers, reindeer are said to be remarkable for their sense of smell, which enables them to find food in up to three feet of snow. They are also the only species of deer in which both males and females grow antlers. (A little birdie told us Santa will personally feed the Como Park Zoo trio on Dec. 11, 18 and 23.)
