The Lemming is a mouse-like arctic rodent characterized by a small, short body that is about 13 cm (about 5 in) long, with a very short tail. Lemmings are tan above and light gray, mixed with tan, below. The head is round, with small ears concealed by fur and with a stubby, hairy snout. The legs are short. The animals live in extensive burrows near the water, feed on vegetation, and build nests out of hair, grass, moss, and lichen. The female produces several broods a year, each of which contains about five young.
One of only two creatures with the digging ability, the Lemming has little else going for it. However, combined with another creature this can be an extremely valuable ability. Use the Lemming in low-level combinations that don’t require a more powerful and costly creature.
