Is Rudolph a male or female?

The impressive antlers of Santa’s reindeers seem to indicate that they are adult males, since females and young males antlers are much less developed. However, antlers of larger males shed in early December, and only regrow in March of the following year. As opposed to females that keep their antlers all winter, and young males that only shed theirs after the Christmas holidays. Therefore, science cannot explain the fiction: all the evidence suggests that Rudolph and its companions are females or young males.rennes-shutterstock_113075164
