The Arctic fox is well adapted for its northern habitat. All white, they blend into the frozen landscape. They have thick fur and a long, bushy tail that they use to wrap around their body at night for warmth. Even their feet are furry which helps keep them from slipping on the ice. They have small eyes, ears and nose for protection against the cold. They have short legs that keep them close to the ground, away from the bitter wind. These physical adaptations make it possible to survive in their harsh, northern climate.
