Interesting facts about Arctic foxes

All rights reserved. It has furry soles, short ears, and a short muzzle—all-important adaptations to the chilly clime. Arctic foxes live in burrows, and in a blizzard they may tunnel into the snow to create shelter. Arctic foxes have beautiful white sometimes blue-gray coats that act as very effective winter camouflage. The natural hues allow the animal to blend into the tundra's ubiquitous snow and ice. When the seasons change, the fox's coat turns as well, adopting a brown or gray appearance that provides cover among the summer tundra's rocks and plants. These colorings help foxes to effectively hunt rodents, birds, and even fish.

Arctic foxes, with their bright white winter coats, are iconic animals of the Arctic tundra. Check out these 15 fun facts. Lemmings are their primary food, but Arctic foxes are true omnivores, eating almost anything, including ring seal pups, carcasses left over by polar bears, seaweed and berries. Arctic foxes can smell carcasses left by polar bears up to 40 km away — not a bad skill to have in years when there are fewer lemmings running around. And speaking of lemmings — while Arctic foxes can hear lemmings several centimetres below the surface of the snow, they can smell them even farther down — up to 77 centimetres deep. While Arctic foxes have a circumpolar range, their individual territories range from three to 25 square kilometres.

Arctic foxes have several adaptations that allow them to survive. Their round, compact bodies minimize surface area that is exposed to the cold air. Their muzzle, ears, and legs are short, which also conserves heat. Of course, the defining feature of the Arctic fox is their deep, thick fur which allows them to maintain a consistent body temperature. Arctic foxes also have thick fur on their paws, which allows them to walk on both snow and ice. They have big ears, long bushy tails and furry toes that help to keep them cool in the hot and dry Central Valley environment. The swift fox is an indicator species — it can tell us a lot about the health of its grassland ecosystem.

Photographs of the fox usually show it with a white winter coat, but the animal may be a different color depending on genetics and season. It is the only canid whose foot pads are completely insulated by fur. Arctic foxes are about the size of a house cat, averaging about 55 cm male to 52 cm female in height, with a 30 cm tail. The fox's weight depends on the season. In the summer, a fox puts on fat to help it survive the winter, essentially doubling its weight. Males range from 3.
