Fact of the Day: Lemming Rat

While lemmings are related to normal rats, they're more closely related to voles and muskrats.

  2. Not related to humans? You'd think so with so many being lemmings and going off a cliff together.

  3. I've been in the arctic when there was a high lemming population. I never saw evidence of any of the folk wisdom such as lemmings going over a cliff.. There are lots of them but they seem to know that they have to try to escape predators. I've never seen a lemming of this olor.
