Steppe lemming

Lagurus lagurus

The steppe lemming is also known as the steppe vole. It has a long waterproof coat which protects it from the cold of the steppes. The steppe lemming is diabetic and can die from having too much sugar. This animal loves to climb, but due to its very flat natural habitat, it doesn't have a sense of danger.

Origin: Mongolia, Northwest China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and South Russia
