Yes you are reading right, Reindeer in Antarctica.... Brought from Scandinavia by Norwegian whalers they now life as wild animals on South Georgia.
It took two winters to change the habit of breeding in the European summer and adapt to the Southern summers. Now one can see them isolated in the various valleys - as we did in St. Andrews Bay high up on the mountain slopes.
