There's at least one thing that's true regarding the Santa Claus Story ... aside from having a Red Nose, reindeer really do exist and the Buffalo Zoo has proof.

The Buffalo Zoo was host to baby reindeer Thor on April 18th, a Scandinavian reindeer born to mother Solara and father Apollo.  Thor was introduced to the public on Mother's Day. Thor's name is the result of an online contest where people suggested names for the baby reindeer.

According to News Reports,cTodd Geise, the Buffalo Zoo’s Director of Marketing said this regarding Thor

“He’s going to continue to grow.”  He’s working on solid foods now after the first couple of weeks just having his mother’s milk, so he’s going to continue to grow, and grow very fast.”
