Mika and Niels were brought in by the Antwerp Zoo. The Zoo could no longer keep these animals and found no place for them anywhere. That's how they came to De Zonnegloed. Now Mika and Niels can rest assured that they are still going to have a hopeful life.

Where does he feel most at home?

Reindeers can be found in the arctic tundra and subarctic forests of North America, Northern Europe and Asia.

What's his favourite food?

They like lichens, grasses, leaves, mushrooms and berries.

Fun fact

The population of Lapland consumes the meat of the reindeer, uses the coat for clothing such as shoes and blankets. They use the milk from the reindeer cows to make cheese and butter and from the antlers are made knives and household equipment.
