Spanish: Los Lemmings
By Vickie Chao
1 The Arctic tundra is a harsh terrain. During the wintertime, the temperature is unbearably frigid. Most plants are either dead or buried deep under snow. Most animals have either migrated to warmer places in the south or chosen to hibernate through the season. Life appears to be at a standstill, or so it seems.
2 Lemmings live in the Arctic. They don't migrate. They don't hibernate. They stay right where they are all year-round.
3 Lemmings are small rodents, measuring up to 6 inches in length and weighing less than 5 ounces. They have stocky bodies, stubby tails, and short legs. They have beady eyes and minute ears. To sustain themselves in the icy weather and to live through the dwindling food supply, lemmings have come up with various ingenious solutions. Of about 20 different species, the collard lemming is probably the most adaptive of all!
