Are there any marine animals in the Arctic Tundra?
Th Arctic tundra refers to cold, flat lands that always have a layer of frozen soil a few inches below the surface, called permafrost. Because marine animals by definition live in the ocean and not on land, there aren't marine animals in the tundra. However, many marine animals such as fish, killer whales, sea lions, and more live in the Arctic, and a few, such as sea lions, may rest on the shoreline of the tundra.
there arent any birds in the arctic tundra.
Carnivores in the Arctic tundra can eat all sorts of prey including caribou, deer, foxes, and any other mammal species that can survive there.
Yes. 4 species of earthworms from the Family Lumbricidae were found in Alpine Tundra in the Urals (Russia). Enchytracids have a tendency to be found in Arctic Tundra.
it has arctic moss
Any type of plant is a producer. Arctic moss, Arctic willow, bear-berry, and labrador tea are all producers in the tundra. Also, the 100+ flowers that are in the tundra! Dont forget it!
caribou and any tundra bird
There are indeed regions of the Antarctic classified as "Tundra". Especially around the Antarctic Peninsula. The Antarctic tundra doesn't have any large mammals such as polar bears that you can find in the Arctic tundra. Animal life consists mostly of seagoing birds,seals and penguins. If you want to be picky ( and who doesn't ? ) you could also include rabbit and cats as they have been introduced to some of the Antarctic islands which… Read More
Yes, "tundra" is a climatic zone not a landscape, the same range of landforms occurs as in any other climatic zone.
yes theres air pollution
Reindeer live in the tundra, lichen is a type of plant in the tundra, there are dwarf trees in the tundra, there are small-leafed shrubs, there are mountain goats in the tundra, there are sheep in the tundra, there are elk in the tundra, caribou live in the tundra, arctic hares (rabbits) live in the tundra, arctic foxes live in the tundra, wolves live in the tundra, polar bears live in the tundra, ........................................If you… Read More
any arctic animals
yes polar bear rides
Plenty, but mostly it's snow and tundra.
The Arctic is primarily sea ice, open sea or tundra and not classified as a true desert. However, people do live in the Arctic.
any of the animals

Tundra animals live in desolate cold tundra regions, such as those of norther Canada, or any area where levels of subsoil beneath the surface of the earth are permanently frozen.
Yes, a very good amount actually. Here's a list: Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare, Polar Bears. Snowy Owls, Musk Ox, Harlequin Duck, Grizzly Bears, Ermines, Caribous, Snow Leopards etc. You may not think animals could live in such a cold place, but most of these animals have thick fur up to 2 inches. I hope this helps! :)
Well for most animals there really isn't any competition. Polar Bears are the top of food chain. They are the main hunters of the tundra. so to them we (humans) are the only other competition for most animals that live in the Tundra.
There are arctic parasites - it depends on how you look at it. There are many pelagic crustaceans that are parasites, and there are also some above land. Although if you are talking about the Arctic itself I'm not sure, but there are parasites in the North Tundra.
Apart from all the marine life Polar bears Arctic foxes Reindeer Lemmings Many birds
Arctic foxes generally eat any small animal they can find, including lemmings, voles, other rodents, hares, birds, eggs, fish, and carrion. They scavenge on carcasses left by larger predators such as wolves and polar bears, and in times of scarcity even eat their feces. They also eat some plants, including seaweed.
Yes, polar bears are one of the endangered animals in the Arctic ocean. Others I am not sure of.
Arctic hares are herbivores and do not prey on other animals.
No, Arctic hares are herbivores. they do not prey on other animals.
Because it is blocked from any sunlight due to mountains, and the fact that it is in the Arctic Region. Now you know :)
The tundra has barely any vegetation; perhaps a few shrubs near the taiga, but it's rare. Think of the arctic when you think of the tundra; that's far northern Russia and parts of Canada that are really close to the north pole.
there are a few that actually do hunt arctic hares. there is the polar bear, the arctic fox and man
There are several poisonous animals that are found in the marine biome. These include jelly fish, sea urchins, and sea anemones.
YES!! any marine animals in the tsunami can get washed up on land on the beach or where the wave stops. Plus all the food the marine animals have to eat is washed away so if they survive they will have no food and will starve to death.
No , it is impossible because the climate is too cold for any water to flow without freezing or there may be a waterfall but not flowing
I am thinking that the Tundra climate is barren, has nearly no vegetation and lacks almost any population, where as the sub-arctic climate is able to support little plant and human life.
Marine means sea or ocean -- salt water. Antarctica is a continent. No marine animals live on any continent.
The measured South Pole sits on more than 9,300 feet of ice: there is no tundra there, nor are there any animals. Antarctica is too cold to support animal life, and there is no food chain there.
Any marine animal
yes but not all tundras
A Marine Biologist is important because without them we would know nothing about fish, ocean life, any marine animals or the ocean itself.
any food web is a situation of interrelationships as well as a flow of energy. Generally, predators or consumers are supported by prey or plant eaters which of course live on indigenous plants. The plants are supported by compounds produced by bacteria and weathering. To find what fits into a tundra food web, find animals and plants that live there. Arctic foxes and hawks perhaps wolves feed on plant eaters such as arctic hare, deer… Read More
Arctic fox and polar bear
you would be working with any mammals or animals living under water.
Believe it or not, sponges are considered marine animals and do not have any sense organs.
If you go far enough into the Arctic/Antarctic, all animals are carnivores because there aren't any plants to eat.
this is the worst
The marine biome is a more scientific way of saying "an ocean habitat". I haven't seen any sharks prancing through the deciduous forests or galloping over the open tundra lately. I must conclude that, yes, sharks live in the marine biome.
There are no arctic wolves in Antarctica, nor or there any land animals: it's too cold there to support any kind of animal life or food chain.
No, Arctic foxes dig extensive burrows where they take shelter from bad weather.
The main competition comes from the red fox that inhabits much of the range of the Arctic fox.
Litter for a start pollutes oceans, but it also attracts marine animals and they eat the rubbish. When fish, dolphins, penguins, seals or water birds eat plastic, mostly they choke on it. If it doesn't hurt any marine animals, there is a big chance it will end up in Pacific Gyre, which is a pile of rubbish in the Pacific ocean the size of Australia. That can't be good for marine animals either. Hope that… Read More
Because you get to see marine animals and to entertain kids if you have any.
