What is the animal Lemming known for?

Lemmings are small rodents that live in or near the Arctic tundra.

They are known for their periodic population booms and migrations, which sometimes involve crossing water bodies and losing some individuals.

They are also known for their distinctive appearance and behavior, such as their bright fur, short tail, flattened claw, and aggressiveness.

Lemmings have been the subject of many myths and legends, such as spontaneously generating in the sky, exploding when angry, or committing mass suicide by jumping off cliffs.

However, these are all false and based on misunderstandings or deliberate fabrications.

Lemmings are actually fascinating animals that have adapted to their harsh environment and display complex social and ecological interactions.

What does the Lemming look like?

A lemming is a small rodent that lives in or near the Arctic tundra.

It has a round body, short legs, a short tail, and a furry snout.

Its fur is usually brown and black, but can vary depending on the season and the species.

Lemmings have small ears that are hidden by their fur, and a flattened claw on their front feet that helps them dig in the snow.

Lemmings are herbivorous, eating mostly mosses, grasses, berries, and roots.

Some additional facts are:
  • Lemmings are known for their periodic population booms and migrations, which sometimes lead them to cross water obstacles or encounter predators.
    Contrary to popular myth, lemmings do not commit mass suicide by jumping off cliffs.
  • Lemmings belong to the subfamily Arvicolinae, which also includes voles and muskrats.
    There are about 20 species of lemmings, such as the Norway lemming, the brown lemming, and the collared lemming.
    Each species has its own range, habitat, and behavior.
  • Lemmings are active throughout the year, even in the harsh winter.
    They live in complex tunnel systems under the snow, where they make nests out of grasses, feathers, and wool.
    In the spring, they move to higher ground, where they breed continuously before returning to the tundra in the autumn.
