Moss on the ground in Setesdal, Norway in Autumn
The diet of the Lemming consists of moss, grass, small insects and plants and they are found in abundance in Arctic tundra zones and meadows, where a layer of permafrost creates a unique ecological environment. The brown and black Norway Lemming undergoes such sudden, periodic population increases that it is forced to cross bodies of water in search of food.
