What kind of animals live in the Arctic and Antarctica?

Because the Arctic has plants and fresh water, it’s able to support several large land mammals as well as smaller rodents, weasels, and insects. In Antarctica, where there’s very little flora and even less fresh water, the largest land animal is a midge. Even so, both the Arctic and Antarctic are home to some incredible wildlife.

Are there any trees in the North Pole?

There are Arctic forests in Norway, and a Larch tree grove in Siberia. The Arctic Willow grows everywhere in Greenland.
