Tundra Biomes are a rare type of biome. They are often called Ice Plains due to the fact that they resemble a Plains or Desert Biome covered in snow. Tundra Biomes are not often seen, but can be a nice home for players, as they are fairly flat. However, in other cases Tundra Biomes often appear almost like Extreme Hills Biomes in places because they sometimes have massive hills.
