He’s rather cute but deadly too, those big fierce eyes, icy blue. About enough to just trick you, he’s rather cute but deadly too.

I am going to tell you about the amazing arctic fox!

First of all, an arctic fox can have very interesting features. An arctic fox is a mammal. A mammal is a warm-blooded animal who does not lay eggs. They have there babies live. The average height of an arctic fox is 25-30 centimeters tall. The average weight is 2.5 to 0 kg the tail is 35 centimeters long and the body is an average to 46 to 68 centimeters long. The arctic fox has white, brown, grey or a bluish color fur. Arctic foxes have small rounded ears that control sound location and heat loss. Footpads on an arctic fox’s paw provide traction if they want to walk on ice so they don’t slip like us.

Also, an animal's habitat is where it lives and finds it food. You can find arctic foxes in the outer areas of Greenland, Russia, Canada, and Alaska. They also live in Iceland and the Arctic.The type of biome they live in is a tundra. The arctic fox lives on icy plains with no trees. The type of home they live in is a den. A den is a liar wild animals use for homes.

Furthermore, an animal's living habits are important for survival. For an example, they need eating habits! Here is an arctic foxes diet. They eat lemmings, voles, bunnies, birds, bird eggs and carrion. Arctic fox sleeping habits are important as well. Arctic foxes sleep at night and sometimes they use their tail for a blanket.  An arctic fox stays in the same area most of the time. They are very quiet almost silent but only sometimes.

Lastly, arctic foxes have a lot of interesting facts about them. Did you know that an arctic fox’s fur can change color from white in the winter to brown in the spring and back again? In fact, an arctic fox’s fur is so cool, it lets the arctic fox stay in weather as low as -50 degrees celsius! Often, an arctic fox follows a polar bear so when the polar bear kills something, the arctic fox steals some of it and the scientific name for an arctic fox is Alopex Lagopus meaning hare-footed fox.

I chose to study the arctic fox because at the beginning of the school year, I played a game called never alone. One of the main characters in the game was an arctic fox. After playing the game I decided to find out more about this kind of fox. I looked them up online and found them cool, fascinating and cute!  

I hope you found reading this amusing. I learned so many interesting things about the arctic fox’s way of living. We learned about different features, habitat, living habits and some shocking facts! What about you? What did you learn from reading this?
