What is the largest tundra animal?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

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 also support an environment classified as tundra. Actually apart from the cats and rabbits on those islands, there are no land based animals to be found. All other animals are sea going and come to land to rest, breed etc....
