New to the Norwegian course, was hoping for funny sentences like the Danish Course had, and I'm only this early in, and already back to the funny sentences! :D

It only means "the reindeer". "The deer" would be "hjorten".

Norwegian mostly use the word "reinsdyr" or "reinsdyret" in stead of "reinen", but it is ok to say that as well

I just wanted to say to the mods that i love your tips on this lesson section. Remembering Fugl as relating to Fowl made that word very easy to learn.

In Norwegian there is no present continuous form of verbs (at least not without bending the rules a bit), so there is no real equivalent to the English "they are eating". Instead, the present tense form encompasses both "they eat" and "they are eating", so that "[de] spiser..." is used to translate both.

Bread stuffed reindeer and crab sounds like a delicious feast...

Amazing that "The reindeer and the crab eat bread" was judged as incorrect in favor of "The reindeer and the crab are eating bread" considering they are the same (from "spiser").
