Arctic fox

Vulpes lagopus


For better protection against the cold, animals living in northern climates have shorter appendages than their cousins living in warmer regions. Compare ears and legs to those of the Red Fox and you will see that the Arctic fox's are shorter.


These pictures were taken at a zoo. This arctic fox is a captive animal. Located on the western tip of the Island of Montreal, the Ecomuseum zoo offers its visitors a unique and natural experience. It is operated by the St. Lawrence Valley Natural History Society, a not-for-profit organization with a mission that focuses on education, research and applied conservation. You will discover and get intimate glimpses into the lives of more than 115 species of live animals native to Quebec’s St. Lawrence Valley.
