L is for Lemming

This is one of those ones that you don’t get until you’ve read the caption.  I remember Kim drawing this a while back.  We think it is fun when we play a bit more with different animals, otherwise the ideas all become a bit the same.

Whilst not endangered, the Norwegian Lemming occurs regularly only in areas with severe winters and continuous snow cover during several months. It seems to be an animal for which summer conditions are more critical than winter conditions. As the climate gets warmer, arctic species cannot retreat north and may become endangered.  If changes are too rapid, the extinction of the Norwegian lemming seems inevitable.
