'Clowns of the Tundra'

The Arctic fox, also known as the ‘white fox, polar fox, or snow fox’ is one of the most characteristic species native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and is common throughout. It is well adapted to living in cold, harsh environments and is perhaps, best known for its beautiful winter-white pelage (fur) that also provides useful camouflage. Arctic foxes are small, incredibly hardy animals well adapted to life in some of the coldest areas on earth, where frigid Arctic temperatures often dip below -50F. They have short legs, fury soles to the feet, short rounded-ears, a stubby muzzle and a thick bushy tail, which offers a warm cover when sleeping, which minimises the heat loss
