Arctic fox

Arctic fox - Boreal Region - Parc Oméga

Boreal Region

Smaller that the red fox, the arctic fox has adapted to the polar regions. Indeed, as its legs and muzzle are shorter it better retains its heat. Its fur is used as a camouflage. It is then white in the winter and brownish in the summer. The arctic fox now inhabits a large territory going from the Arctic, from Iceland to Russia and also through Canada.

They hunt lemmings, hares and birds but they also eat berries and eggs.
