Arctic fox

Vulpes lagopus


This pretty fox was seen whilst out looking for the Polar Bears of the Arctic tundra in Churchill. It is well adapted to living in cold environments. It has a deep thick fur which is brown in summer and white in winter. It averages in size at about 85.3 cm (33.6 in) in body length, with a generally rounded body shape to minimize the escape of body heat.


native to Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and is common throughout the Arctic tundra biome.


These photos were taking a good few years ago and unfortunately at the time I didnt have a great camera so they arent uite as clear as they should be.
