Arctic Fox

Exotic Animals
About This Project

Known as the white, polar or snow fox, Arctic Foxes are found throughout the Arctic Tundra.

They live in some of the most frigid extremes on the planet but do not start to shiver until the temperature drops below -70C. The fox has a low surface area to volume ratio as evidenced by its compact body shape and short muzzle, legs and ears.

In the wild they will live in underground burrows that can have up to 100 entrances. You will see our foxes fur change colour from a grey-brownish colour in the summer months to a thick white coat in winter.
