The Norway Lemming is a small rodent that is found in the Arctic tundra of Scandinavia and Russia. These little creatures are known for their playful nature and friendly disposition.
Lemmings are highly social animals, and typically live in colonies of up to 100 individuals. They are active during the day and prefer to live in open areas near water. Lemmings build nests out of grasses, moss, and leaves, and typically sleep in these nests during the day.
Lemmings eat a variety of things, including plants, insects, and other small animals. They are also known to scavenge food from human settlements.
Norway Lemmings are known for their amazing jumping ability. They can jump as high as 3 meters (10 feet) and as far as 10 meters (33 feet). This makes them very well suited to life in the Arctic tundra.
Norway Lemmings are considered a species at risk, and are protected by law in Scandinavia and Russia. Their populations have declined in recent years due to Habitat loss and hunting. However, they remain a common sight in the wild and are a popular subject of study among scientists.
