The Arctic Fox: Arctic foxes live in Canada’s coldest environment, the tundra. This small canine is well adapted to the Arctic’s frigid temperatures. Arctic Foxes don’t shiver until temperatures reach -70C when they curl up in a cozy ball to maintain body heat.
Using their keen sense of hearing and smell, Arctic Foxes prey on small creatures, like fish and birds which are often found beneath the snow that covers much of their habitat. Putting their bouncy back legs to work, they dive nose first into the snow to snag their dinner.
