Also known as the White Fox, the Arctic Fox (Alopex lagopus) is found in the Arctic region. It has evolved greatly to adjust and adapt to the harsh Arctic climate and its thick fur is the warmest amongst all mammals.
A predator as well as a scavenger, it will eat any meat that it gets. However, its primary diet consists of lemming and the Arctic hare. During cold winters, when food becomes scarce, it tends to scavenge the remains left over by larger predators such as polar bears.
To stay camouflaged during summers, it sheds its white coat for a brown one and starts regaining its winter coat when summer ends. During winters, it digs dens in the snow to keep warm. At times, it will even capture burrows made by squirrels and enlarge them to make dens.
The Arctic Fox is hunted for its extremely warm fur, which can be used as clothing.
