Likewise, people ask, where does the water in a bog come from?
Bogs occur where the water at the ground surface is acidic and low in nutrients. In some cases, the water is derived entirely from precipitation, in which case they are termed ombrotrophic (cloud-fed). Water flowing out of bogs has a characteristic brown colour, which comes from dissolved peat tannins.
what kind of animals live in a bog? Animal Life in a Bog Mammals like the snowshoe hare, moose, beaver, and muskrats are also found in and around bogs.

Can you swim in a bog?
It's not every day you get to swim in a bog pool in real wilderness. Which translates as 'Land of Bogs' where you can meander through meadows and mires by canoe, hike across squelchy sphagnum moss with the aid of ingenious bogshoes, and cool off in the most divine natural pools you will ever come across.
