By Miles Herbert    
"Cliff" is a Steppe Lemming (Lagarus lagarus) and is a bit special. As a youngster he was bullied by his siblings so we had to separate him from the others and bring him up on his own. He is a stubborn little cuss who has anger issues - when I first got him he was scared of everything and very bitey. Now he has been living on my desk for the last 2 months he has got very used to me being there, so now greets me happily looking for a treat ... before biting me! Cliff and I are going to fall out ...

What do you call a lemming with a seagull on its head?
Cliff !

I assume he is in a cage on your desk, otherwise you might not have any fingers left.
