#5 Animal of the Month Episode 1: Deer

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Hello and welcome back to NatureLab! In this first episode to a new series we are doing, Animal of the Month! Max and Dan are dicussing the many different amazing facts about deer. This episode will hopefully shed some new light onto the deer and make you also see why these animals are as great as the two co hosts say they are. 

Hello and welcome back to Nat lab theshow what we talk about everything and anything about nature, stay and joinedby my co host. Damn just me today, just does to today.First of all, I would like to say I know: We've been very quiet recently inall our platforms, but we are in the end of our studies, literally it's thefinal semester of the funnel year, so everything's a bit Heti right now, yeah,it's a bit mad en to yeah. We've just been trying to like crack on we work.So we do apologize for that, but we are very thankful for your patience as agreat audience, but today we are when we started something exciting and newfor the channel, something we are going to be called. That's going to be calledanimal of the month. Every move we choose an animal for, or you guys,shoes from one of our Social Medio Poles. We do every month, probably ontwitter and we will have an episode based sonly on the animal once a month.It's a way for us to get involved with you guys, Mare on a way for you guys toget involved in the show more. This moment's animal is dear. We've got abit of a guide to de or I guess, like a general introduction to what they are.If you're in the UK. You've, probably you probably know what they are becauseOh yeah, I imagine, like a lot of people, have seen deer before yeah. Igot the wild to be far though in cities like I imagine that not as common likeme and you both live in like countryside scan places. Oh Sheffield's,not really! It's like the fourth largest C E. I M E, but I have yeah itain't London. Is it that realisent Al? Oh No! You want this idea there, but the dear eart- and I I will notpronounce this correctly, so I'm going to apologize to all de in the family.It's seven Sevena Vena. I think it so that is Er v, I n a e serven yeah. Thatis the group that bok the old dear, belong to yeah, we'll talk about likethe cousins of deer later and yeah, we're going to like certain DPI lateron Yeah, but all these type of day they're all globally distributed. Sothere are very few places that won't have a species of de or a closely relatedspecies of deer yeah. We recently found out that deer actually present in allthe continents of the world except Antartic, which is is acting forspiders, but Africa only has one pieces of deercalled the barbary red which mean dad I've not heard before. So that was a noI'd, never heard of that one. But there's about about forty species. Themight me more, but that's that's yeah. We I saw a study saying there wasaround sixty, but I've seen more things point toward forest were saying fortyyeah we're going to go. I think we should go with forty yeah, the Herbert was, and he and the matingseason is known as the rout, a Bal user and less to overpower other males andthe mate with a female, yes kind of like a fight for dominance. In a way, alot of animals do that they have like a oneor males going to like a one and onehead on, and the winner gets the chance to me with a female this yeah, but Ifeel like with dear it's like it's a it's a quite known thing. You know whatI mean like males compete in other in like lion prides, for example, yeah Ifeel like deer is on that same level of like flagship or I mean forget what mehave you ever seen. Two dears go y. it's like believe it. I Have I've notseen the well, but I've seen videos and it's insane like a handlers, not strongand hard yeah, the I I would not like to get caught between two stags. Well,I'm going to tell you the story, so I live in a basically the con shot to themiddle of nowhere and when we're out in the country like you, do encounter deerand on one of the days where me and my...

...dad were out. I wasn't anywhere near MeTat, but he had these two stags that were infront of and and so much spoopin. They ran straight at my dad and these oldlittle stags. These are big red stags, O God, where I live. I these two stagscame bolting at my dad and like either side of him, and he couldn't doanything so we just he just literally froze and stood still, and he felt likethe wind of there at les just a like go past him. Oh my God, yeah terrifyingyeah! I, the quiet, reminded me of like themodern, do try sale tops in a way. If anyone doesn't know, stag isactually a word for male deer, yeah yeah. We were going to that a bit. We also found out that they are eventold hove mammals and was it something we saw somethingabout. bluish light cells and green, yellow light cells in their eyes yeah,so deer can only see the bluish, yellow and green colors wow, which I neverthought of. I think it Veliko like dogs and cats, maybe because they're quitecommon and they're like Oh, what do they see, but I've never feel like whatdo any other animals see I've, never even dove into the marine side. Of thatlike what do those an say, you know we, the only animal. I know that knows theseason more colors, I knows, is the man to the shrimp yeah. But that's all Iknow- and I didn't realize that like Cola variation was lacked and dearperception, that's quite cool. I wonder how that like inhibits their life,though yeah wonder what that has to do with predators and stuff like that yeah, but but yeah, but but back to themeeting season. Sorry so right, which is also as a root like I said, malesuse the analyst overpower each other, but we've also seen that in red deerthey learn to like give off like a raw sound, Don root which yeah is forattracting purposes, and I think they also have like a roar off with eachother yeah. That's like a long distance kindof thing like a this is mine this I I'm hunting here. This is my territory yeah,but but after sorry gone, they are like. I don't know if you'veever seen, but if you type in a deer, a Red Red de, sometimes you get thepictures of the roar like when they do the raw and some of the pictures a batsin they stunnin yea. It reminds me of how walls howl yeah, that we yea it is.I imagine I imagine it's the same poise had the like the way if they rollupwards, the the son was ill, be travel further. Youmentioned in the wolf episode we did yeah, but but yeah, but after me, inseason. Obviously, the babies are born and I believe it'saround one or two fawn, as they called when they're young a bond from onefemale and most of the time forms are covered in white spots, and this helpsthem camoflage in the background, but also they are the lack ascent whenthey're born, so they don't smell like anything, so predators can't pick uptheir scent. Well, I thought, as like, really cool, but even shockingly enough,they're walking within half an hour after birth. But how long does it takelike a human baby to walk? Is it like is whatever it is like? I was quitelate walking. I can't remember. I still can't walk now and I'm twentyone like a never mind like we've been off andhow in me being born, but also it's very similar to how white cowls dietswork. Every specie of deer is different in a way, but they all share the samefor Chamber Gut, which means this...

...allows them to parte partially chewtheir food. They'd be good gate back up and they can shew it down again, so itmakes foods easier to digest and he can eat more within the day. But I don't dothat, though M that be horrible. That would be absolutely horrible. Alsoand of everything I really thought was really call. Is this the white tags?Yes, yeah, that's the way, pretty cool a lot of miffs and legend, there's like stag scene of why but itsgleaves not exist. However, it does doing fat exist. There is white. Stagsis a very, very rare condition from birth, known as elosia. I think it is a Les LucyLesieur Loa, which causes her and skin to lose their natral color given, andit basically gives them a pure white coat and gives them like an albinostyle. Look to him. It's really really cool but obviously, like we mentioneddears are all over the world, but we also have the s in the UK. You know, Ithink I think that's why we can do this. This episode comfortably it's because,like there, our most prominent like large mammal yeah in the UK, that's like quite wild.Like one of the most stunning UK animals as well, there definitely like- I don't know who says like UK-doesn't have amazing native well life they're completely wrong. Oh yeahthey're wrong. We have amazed it. We have amazing world life, but yeah doyou want to talk about British Dears Down Yeah? So there are six species ofdear. In the UK, we've got red deer we've got Seka, we've got ro Mudjofallow. We've got the Chinese water here, which you didn't know about theChinese. What it did- and I didn't know what he shows. What de I was. I wasreally surprised to find out that Chinese war Dar is native to the UK.Why see help the Chinese oude? It is a bit weird. It makes no sense tome, but yeah, the the I think, they're quite rare, to be fair. You have youyou! No! No! I I'm not a hundred percent sure about this, but I thinkit's because they're mainly in the south of England. I might be wrongright. Okay. So if anyone listening and correct me on that, if I am wrong, yeahthere's no one to wear what was happy to her, but the Chinese. What d here aquiet distinct, so they don't have any antlers the like the males or thefemales don't. Instead, they have like these fangs for teeth that create yeah.They get like eight eight centimeters long about. Oh, that's, that's reallystraight they don't they don't have atlas even now, like I'm pretty sure,like all species a do have antlers. I think they might have little stops,but I think the the identifying feature on them is that this is their thanks tohate, because someone, because one jack are the ones that have short the stumpsas well so yeah they're antless. So there I think it's like a defining featurebetween those two, that's so cool yeah. I wonder what the use it for. I imagineit's like for foraging purposes like diggingthrough the ground mood yeah yeah, because I rember what they do in inlike meeting season, because obviously, like you've got de Velvet and stufflike that and yeah and shading. So I wonder what they do in that mad in howmuch that affects the mate in season. Yeah we'll have to look into that afterthis we're both very new to day is yeah, but even though we have those six nativespecies, the only true indigenous dear all the red on the road here, thoughyeah, because it turns out that the followd was introduced. Certainly it was so. It was certainly introducedby the normans while Free Asada Mood, Jack, Chinese, water, deer and theseeker were introduced in the late...

...nineteenth and century, a late,nineteen and twentieth century. So they ere not truly native, but they arenative now because they don't live anywhere else. Yeh See, I think,because I think the forte followed the ear so wide spread across the countrylike red. I've got a reputation for being in Scotland. I've got. Imentioned. The Chinese water here in the south. Yeah was Falada a quietextent throughout the UK, so I think people believe that they're not theirindigenous because because they're so distributed so the Chinese war ideawould have been originally founded in China and then Bro y and now he'sprobably extinct in China yeah more than lightly as a yeah is the case yeah,but also, as we mentioned early, how Young de Ocle, fawns and male dearcourse stags. That's not the case for every no she's wet. She gets reallyconfusing. So we we have a list of a few species and it's for the red statefor the red, dear Mali, stag female is hind and youngest cough same for theseeker, but the row De is book. Doe and kid see I normally know I knew staginbook n O, but I didn't know hot hind kid and cough. So you know I knew Iknew some of them called Hind and CAF. I didn't know which species, but Ididn't know the Rodeo called Kid, and I think that's really weird that that guyis read. That's really weird. The MUKA is Bo done, fawn and same of the fallowand the Chinese was to dear. I wonder why they change it then yeah,I think, got something to do with sighs. It might be because seeker and red, Ithink, of the biggest speak now because then rodeo would fit into that. I don'tknow yeah may maybe stag is bigger than book.Yeah hine is bigger than dough. I Don t know once again guys if you know, ifany deer at experts El there listening, please let us know yeah, please, pleaseget in touch with this yeah and H, lab podcast and tar, but the most strikingfeature where everyone knows about deer. Even if you don't know anything aboutthere is that they have anales right and dear arch. The only group foranimals to have antlers in the way they do and also annalys are the fastestgrowing tissue in the world did der need any more titles like any more goldmedals, because you've got to right there. We he's the big God man or thatI think a lot of people won't know about is the the the concer cells that are in the outlet.This is the whole reason why we want to Bate this episode base. We wanted totalk about this. This is so cool, but this is incredible, but they basicallydear I've, gotten a on Codin, which is a gene that can cause counsels beenwhen it's over active. so as that builds up over time, you get differentgens causing cancer, but dear, have another Jean switched on which sosometimes I do obviously, unfortunately, sometimes I don't so they've got P.fifty three, which is a tumors suppress in gene, andit's also known as the guardian of the Genu, because what it does is yeah itshocks the damage, it checks the geno damage. So whendamage is frowned a P, fifty three protein calls in repair, not licuresyea, so this prote can suppress the count of earth and the antlers, andthen that's how they recall. That's how you get such this such rapid growth,without being so detrimental wow yeah. But then you you have seenlike, I don't know if anybody has seen it, but you do get antlers that havethe the whether either the genius atswitched on or there's been a mutation...

...or some something's happened so thatthat P, fifty five p fifty three gen and they do develop like some kind ofdeformity in the antlers and it looks kind oflike novelly. If you get what have been, it looks like a like a coral, almost all right, sodon't really like spy ow. Now you know what I've seen, but have you seen it?You know what I'm talking about? Oh Yeah, yeah yeah. I have it's reallystrange. I didn't know that was it that is so cool yeah. They just have theability to like use cancer positively, yeah positively, all as defense or asfor show that, and it's like the rest o is like immune to this cancel. It seemsall like yeah, it's so insane that they just have this bone cancer in them andcan use it to their advantage. There's got to be some there's got to be someresearch out there on this, because if this can be utilized, you know thisthis Er. Definitely I saw a couple of studies, but not toomany yeah, but this isn't is incredible. That is probably the best thing aboutdis. That's honestly, and even, alas, couldget any more weirder right, an s on the growing on the actually shed him yeahlike ower insect or a spider which shed its skin or a snake playing like anexoskeleton yeah. It gets covered enough in a soft fuzz called der Velvetand it covers the growing boat and college and that develop lips into deerantlers. So they basically the cover in this velvet and when it's when it's outgrown the valve, the velvet was split and fall off and it will form newanglers yeah they, but we can use that that velvet, like that velvet, hassimilar properties because of the it covers the Grambocard. Lige. It's got these similar, like rapid, rapid growth property, sothey used in like joints and bones in medicines of really yeah they used toin Julian Bo repair and modest in medicine. That's really cool, that'sthen re cool, but then they can also be dubbed in sports as a p D, a performance andHounson drug where they used for joy, repair forrecovery and stuff. Like that, Oh wow, mental in it he is a so cool. I'm likeI like days before this episode now we're doing it they've, likeskyrocket, all the way up. There's such a cool animal wow, it's mental thatwe've got them in the UK and and and people don't almost pay that muchattention to him a everyone I talked to when I talked to him about, like UKwild life. To talk about the many you kid birds. We have some great UK birds,yeah, that's that's at the big focused but like then he go like we have likefoxes and badgers and rabbits. That's it it's like! No, we have deer like wehave big things as well. We have lynxes there. We credible animal, which ismental because dear, are in population. Chris is like, if you speak to anyonein a war, rural area. Why Yeah? The population of deer is booming like itis mental. That's why? When we spoke about the hunting conservation episode,we spoke a lot about the conservation of deer and the cause and everythingbecause yea there is. There is so many yeah like if we don't leave, if youleave them on check, they just ravage everything, don't way yeah you justkeep eating and breathing and eating and breeding and ruin the holy cosystem not just to dare and for us, but for everything, but other than thatthey are so cool animal really real idea now, but even even as well. Ithink they were one of the first...

...speeches to be like properly protected, yeah yeah. I think you're right. Ithink it's because like is such a proud, looking animal, I this symbol, and I wa isn't it well,they weren't necessarily like protected per se, but the habit of definitely wasbecause like Lords and kings and what not yes,yeah back in. Like your yeah, I protected the forest in order to t ondear because they didn't want anyone else, hunting them so in a weird kindof messed up way, that was, there cut their first yeah conservation in the UK,which is which is mental, that that was their the savior. Almost that's so strange,it's weird in it yeah and when you think about dear as well there's likethere's no other alnuma. What looks I cud er apart from, like maybe anantelope, but antello ponder like it's, this weird really wallyhorse with giant bone ornaments, let's not a Abeawt will have is like the same.Remember the dolphins horse thing I in star first year, basically ourfriend Joe, he said: If you look at a horse, itlooks like a dolphin without legs, oh right with like and everyone was like baffled theWayman, and we this noon an hour, long argument. How horses do not look likedolphins, which they don't they do not like dot anyway. This is a hot. This,an episode about deer, not horses and dolphins, or doing at track there's alot of cousins to dear. I didn't know that they were, and but I wasn'tsurprised to find out that they are basically mos our cousin, the dearthey're, all under server. Seven e family, yeah, yeah I'll, give it it'sclosing of, but moves can grow to five to six point five for a right, and thatis the largest despetier in the world. They are huge yeah. I didn't realizehow big they are. I don't know if you've ever seen them the pictures oflike a Moose next to a car, but the end of the that huge, so Watana car. Theyare giants like just just like if anyone's listening to his just google,the actual size of a muse yeah, I the Click on images and they are likethey're way bigger than you think they are look at a comparison of an averagehuman to a muse. It is astonishing, is a Stalish. It's scary. They are scary,an a but lucky enough as well. Theirpopulation is actually increasing. Polinoro geographic and I also foundout that actually on the least concern of the IU C and red less so they ades,yeah Moses, are been great and they have a de global distribution,ranging from Canada to Alaska, to New England, to New York, to the New Yorkstate, to Fenes Scandie to the bowl of the Baltic, steaks and Russia, ofcourse, they're a Russian animal, you God they they are built for that climb andthey are built to be in Russia. Quite the quick Canadian as well to like it.Oh Yeah, I thee got quite a connection with Canadian it an Adia Canada. Everytime I think, Canada, I always think a geese, although I don't know why, like my bangos Geese and most them bears Kebuk, I said before they are thelargest des Species and they have some instinctive features of a move. TheMoose has some instincting fishers so...

...like the muzzle actually hangs overtheir Chin because they have such a really long face and they've got. Aflap of skin was called the bell due to the shape underneath their fro during the winter. They scrape away anysnow to find the Lichen or moss hidden underneath. However, these deer species prefer not to likeeat ground level because they have such big antlers. It can be quite difficultyeah, so they tend to eat like higher shrubsor high agrass es, and things like that, but also as being able to scrape awaysnow with their hoofs this there who was actually act as like snow shoes,yeah t even Tho, that would come in handy yeah. You know it's like reallylarge and heavy, and I think the way around eighteen hundred pounds orsomething like that yeah and he can just traverse through snow and Moody,Marshal Like it's nothing yeah, but I you'd have to have like these big, big,big fuck for you when you, Oh yeah, gonna, have you with that size. You'REgonna have to have something on your feet: to Peto a Lila, especiallythrough snow and wood, a like someone, even that big either.They Ha got like these beefy stocky legs like like they have at the top, but thenthey've just got bone like from the lower like down yeah and then at justmassive, so no sort loose are trucks of the animal they can traverse from anything. Theyare the four before the old Moose. One thing what I always find hilariousall right is an astonishing is that move can be found in waterways likelakes and rivers during summer time. This is because they tend to feed in aquiet plants as well as terrestrial right, so they can, even though thatmassive bulky size they could still comfortably live in and out of war andswing their incredible swimmers, they can dive further than five meters downto eat submerge plant life in Latin, the SOBA, diving in a lakeand then sing a moose, that's better. What than what we do when we're beingstupid, because we don't switch from US Arcata can't believe we both did that,and I was like why can't we breathe? We breathe e s there like a gas. I just we want to go diving and justsee him move when past a UTHA would make my I've complete. That would beincredible. What did you see as a couple of cloud fish? Would you say Isaw Mossell it up to polar as well all right but like yeah, the divine ward to eatlike Submerge Co, plant life yeah, but this doesn't mean is that if a moose islike say a swimming from island to Ireland, it is have to cross a largebody of was usually on coastal ranges. One of the known predators to most isactually the ORCA because O so like. Not if I know wolves, hunt humans areknown to be preditos towards me, me e Moose, as well killer, whales or also a non editor toMoose. That's that's amazing. It just doesn't make sense. Does it? No, thatdoes not make sense at all I've. Never I've never gone. What what's Predatorat this this this this land mamma it's found in the mountains. Oh yeah, it'sAucusan also to make dear babies better than they already are within within twoweeks after birth. Moose can swim. Go...

...and not five years old, they can outroom the average human adult. Is that five minutes? Is it thirty minutes?After being the one that can walk as well? A dear fan can can walk thirtyminutes after being born, and I means baby can swim to week less than twoweeks after birth as seven years old, they can outrun the average human. Oh,my God, I know it's incredible, isn't it and e same as like? We would talk aboutearly, how not our males are cos. Stags, Moose males are called Bulls and theybell a loudly quite like red deer to attract mates, and this happens duringSeptember and October. So that's their time of Rut and females give birth to what aroundone or two cars during the spring time, and each calf weighs thirty pounds dirty bound Bertie Pounds, Christ that is insane and also ifanyone was interested. The Moose Italian name is Alice's.Elses is very very easy to remember that one, but most are not the only cousin, a theDon. No we've got elk and we've got reindeer. I think reindeers moreobvious, but yeah yeah. Ok, definitely, the the other one so yeah so elka a group of elk is called a gangand I think that's so funny all I think I, when I hear a gang, a elk cause themafia, but the roll. I help your out Gong would be an amazing band. He Imagine Forget: O Chappo you've gotelco Elk, Chappo, O Jab, the mainly foul inWyoming in America and Yellowstone National Park. I think that's where theprotected yeah yeah a lot a lot of de Species and heard to protect in ayellow stone, a yeah. I would love to go to yellowstone. I'd love, go ye toyou, do a nature ab trick les or Nature Lobon Tor to Yellowstone Nason to yes,yes, okay, Elka, seven hundred pounds or upto seven hundred pounds rather wow and so they're. This obviously we've gotMOS switch in the largest and the ER elko, the second largest on the secondlargest yeah, but people think because Elka so bigthey're, so slow, but they're, not they. They can hit forty miles per hour or,if my God and all I could think about- and this might be because they're myfavorite animals is it- is that if elk can run forty miles per hour, how gooda wolves I hunt in through snow as well- that's incredible! Oh my God, a fortymiles per hour yeah, but they were all the same. So they've also bolt thatfast growing and they also got those fast goingjeans in the amples yeah, but they are but yeah a l COR found all over theworld, the also called Red Dear, but I thinkthat isn't the American like name for them right, okay! This is why we havescientific names and lighten names but yeah. So the light in name for elk isservice. Cat Canon Dennis can a dentist. Canadensis, yes, E is gone. Is Wecannot speak light in a yeah yeah? I think elk is a different species to red deer and the K-oh yeah, definitely, and then I think my favorite fact I found about elk isthat scientists believe that their teeth will watch these eight inch, long,tusks, wow, similar to like a wars orsomething, oh still, quite curved yeah. So Iwonder if...

Chinese water here have the same sortof ancestor or Jean or maybe Chanis? What would you like a more common descendant to the ancestorof elk, then yeah? I want t yeah, which is weird because that which is weirdbecause they're so far apart and they're, so different. Oh Yeah.Definitely his alcove, these very cold, cold environment species where, asChinese water de World, obviously growing up in China, which is like a much warmer country was there was alsosomething about a creation of a flute without quast there. Oh I'm not sure. Ithink there was yeah. Oh yes, so that yeah nativeAmericans yeah so Elka connected to nature, to native Americans throughmusic, because there was a tribe that used thefor used. I think the atlas, or maybe just the bones in general, to greatfirst flute. Oh Wow yeah, I absolutely love finding about like how animals areinvolved and into twil with human culture different around the world. Ithink that's so cool we when we were having that talk the other week, the someone mentioned that getting peopleinvolved with conservation is ensuring that you have that people get arelationship to the animal, because I think I think his quote was somethingabout people not being engaged by just havingmore scientific knowledge yeah. So you can't just grab someone and sayyou should protect this because this and this reason they have to have likealmost an emotional connection with it. If you get what I mean yeah L, it willmake people care and be more passionate about it, yeah and like yeah. This iswhy I find like animal was involved in human culture is so interesting becauseit they're more than just will not just like to animal fuses like me now, butit's like, maybe the common general public to become more than just ananimal, then yeah into the life. It's incredible: Let's move on to India,then, because then, because they yes as they've, got a massive culture, especially in Western caries, yes to trees, yeahthrough Christmas, when everyone thinks reindeer theythink of Rudolph and Santa Claus. So I didn't. I didn't know this. Maybe it'sjust because I'm stupid but reindeer character. The CARIBOO, soCariboo is believed to be the native North American and reindeer assupposed to be the native north, European and Asian species. S L also think that reindeerrepars refers to like the domestication of Cariboo yeah. That's what I wasthought it was yeah domestic name for Carabano. I think Caribou or woe living,but there are mostly groups of Caraboo as well, so I think better way to define the twoare through the regions they come from, which is North America and Europe. Soonce again, while we have Latin names, yeah yeah again, why we? Why we havethe lot names which, for this one is do you want? Did you want to trim? I wouldtry it yeah a range for Tara, dance, yeah, yeah, that's close enough! YeahI'll give you the thin its range of for Tarada yeah, we're not very good at like Caro, Cariboo or reindeer. So we saidthey were associated with Christmas and...

...although they can't fly, there are somespecies that have the not species. There are some individuals that do youhave the red nose, Oh wow, so they have a so that some of them have a reallydense network of red blood cells and that nose- and thatbrings out like this sort of reddish color in some of them. Oh, that is so cool. Iyeah, you know as a kid I always for like rain, dear weren't, a real animal.I when I was really young, is felt like aRani Yeah. They just made up for Christmas. Well, this. I don't know howmany childhoods this this might ruin. You know it shouldn't, because you knowon your day, but ere we go. I is Rudolf a boy or a girl. What do you think if someone gave youthe name Rudolf? What would you say? Is it's always been a boy hasn't it like.So in every story, it's always been a boy. Well, it could be very, very wrongbecause males lose their outlets in November. So all the senters reindeersare technically female. If they're going, if they're going on the slaveright and they've got the antlers yeah, so a females females are the only so it's quite unusual that females haveantlers for the dear family and I think renda mightbe the only ones where females do have arpents and then the only ones that haveindoctrinated as nine doctrinated domesticated as males having that a Christmas like rude, often dancer andPrancer, but on every in every store now a little bad. They are very unisexlike yeah they're, not really defined, actually know. Rudolph is the male,because in this song it's with you with his nose so bright, Oh yeah, is it ofyour nose so break. I could be rough o his with his his nose, so I think it'swith his nose so broke so the there might have to be some changes to that.After that, Oh dear, we crack it. We the truth.
