ANIMAL Life in the ARCTIC - Most of us will never visit the Arctic Circle — and the year round residents of these northernmost and southern regions are perfectly happy with that. We're not talking about Eskimos; we're talking about the animals that call the Arctic home. Though the subzero temperatures and rugged, cold, forests may seem bleak and unforgiving, many species thrive in the frigid tundra of the Arctic Circle.
Some of these animals you will have seen before, like the polar bear or the snowy owl, seal, snow leopards, penguins, walrus, puffins, deer, and husky dogs while others are more exotic, like the "albino white deer" and cuddly snow hares. HANSA invites you to EXPLORE these areas and learn about the unique, animals who call this area HOME!
