Fun Facts for Kids
- Sometimes an Arctic fox will walk behind a polar bear to eat its food scraps.
- When cold, the fox will wrap its thick bushy tail around itself to keep warm.
- It has a unique heat exchange system that will stop it from shivering until the temperature goes below −70 °C (−94 °F).
- Arctic foxes that live where the color of the snow is not pure white grow fur with the same grayish color.
- When hunting, the fox must break through thick snow. To do this, the fox jumps up high and then dives headfirst into the snow.
- Arctic foxes have a keen sense of smell. They can smell carcasses that are often left by polar bears anywhere from 10-40 km (6-24 miles). It is possible that they use their sense of smell to also track down polar bears. Additionally, Arctic foxes can smell and find frozen lemmings under 46-77 cm of snow and can detect a subnivean seal lair under 150 cm of snow.
- Arctic foxes have strongly pigmented eyes as protection from the glare of the sun. Sometimes each eye is a different color.
- The Arctic fox can easily hear lemmings burrowing under 4-5 inches (10-12 cm) of snow. When it has located its prey, the fox pounces, and punches through the snow to catch its prey.
The Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and common throughout the Arctic tundra biome. It is well adapted to living in cold environments and is best known for its thick, warm fur that is also used as camouflage. In the wild, most individuals do not live past their first year but some exceptional ones survive up to 11 years.
