Survival of the Poisonous: Amanita Muscaria vs. Reindeer

Reindeer are way too clever for their own sake. Is such cleverness coming from communicating from within with the higher most? We will probably never know as Reindeer don't really speak... our language I mean. In a battle for survival against the most extreme low temperatures and adverse conditions, Reindeer found an ally in the hallucinogenic Amanita Muscaria (fly agaric). Licking the mushroom, drinking urine with concentrated muscimol and tripping to the sound of Pink Floyd, these animals even play as divinities for the humans they pull the whole cold season through. In this particular battle, a draw is most likely the most acceptable outcome. If you don't believe me, ask Santa.
