The beautiful arctic fox is an extremely hardy animal that can survive extreme Arctic temperatures down to -58°F.
No creature living in the Arctic has fur that can provide sufficient warmth like the arctic fox.
Arctic foxes are ‘opportunistic omnivores,’ which means they will eat almost anything, from animals to vegetables.
Sporty furry soles, short ears, and a short muzzle, all of which are essential to being able to withstand the frigid climate.
The arctic foxes are famous for their beautiful white fur, which is perfect camouflage in winter, but it changes color with the seasons.
The fox’s beautiful white fur turns gray-brown to blend in with summer’s rocky and tree-lined landscape.
This color adaptation enables foxes to effectively hunt prey, usually rodents, birds, and fish.
There is sometimes a shortage of prey in winter, so the arctic fox will follow the top predator in the area, a polar bear, and eat the leftover detritus.
Found throughout the coastal regions of the Arctic Circle, from Canada to Europe, Russia, Iceland, and more.
The arctic foxes’ beautiful fluffy tails help them with balance, like a cat, and keep them warm in winter.
They are faithful and monogamous and mate equally, up to two litters per season, with up to 14 pups.
They mate and give birth every summer with a litter of up to 14 cubs.
