Lemmings are like guinea
pigs. When the first few lemmings in a group are born, there is plenty
of food. Then more and more lemmings are born. Food is scarce.
Some of the tribe leave. They march and march. Nothing can
stop their march. Though some are eaten, more are born and
they keep on marching. Eventually, they reach the ocean. Then
they march right into the ocean and drown themselves. Back at the
tribe, more are born. The saga starts again.
