Pow­er­ful legs

World of Animals - - All About Reindeer -

Rein­deer have long, strong and mus­cu­lar legs that sup­port them at speeds of up to 80kph (49.7mph)– per­fect for rooftop land­ings with Santa Claus’ sleigh! The run­ning mus­cles are close to the trunk of the leg, mak­ing the legs

light­weight and help­ing them to es­cape preda­tors.
