Arctic Fox (Vulpes Lagopus)
In summer the Arctic Fox is a gray brown. But as winter begins they turn a creamy white. With a long bushy tail, small curled ears, and thick fur they can survive the harsh snow. They are usually about 3 feet long and weigh about 5-15 pounds.
Arctic Foxes are found throughout Arctic tundra, Alaska, Canada, Greenland, Russia, Norway, Scandinavia, and even Iceland.
