Arctic foxes are a type of fox. They are also known as polar foxes, snow foxes or white foxes. They have white fur in the winter so they can camouflage against the snow; and brown-gray fur when the whether changes to blend in with their surroundings.

Arctic foxes will trail polar bears and eat prey left behind, as seen in The Quest Begins.


Diet

Arctic foxes are mainly carnivorous, eating rodents, owls, bird eggs and carcasses left by polar bears. They wil also eat fruit, berries and young ringed seals when they are helpless in their sn

ow dens. They also prey on arctic birds. They will lie in wait for the fledging young birds to land or fall to the ground as they try to fly, and then kill and eat the unsuspecting fledglings.

Reproduction

Arctic foxes are known to mate from September to May. Their gestation period is usually about 50 days. Arctic foxes on average have 5-8 kits in a litter, but they can have up to 25 kits in one litter. Once the kits are born, males will take care of the female and kits, and arctic foxes of earlier litters may stay to help take care of younger kits in their family.
