Arctic Fox Photos and Facts


I’ve been able to photograph the gorgeous Arctic Fox lots of times and have seen them in all of the different fur coats. Quite a striking difference between them. They are black when they are born and gradually turn to their glorious winter white in their second winter.

Interesting and Fun Facts About Arctic Foxes

  • can survive frigid Arctic temperatures as low as –58°F (-50°C)
  • arctic foxes give birth each spring to a large litter of up to 14 pups or kits
  • Head and body, 18 to 26.75 in (46 to 68 cm); tail, up to 13.75 in (35 cm)
  • 6.5 to 17 lbs (3 to 8 kg)
  • also called the Polar Fox, the White Fox, and the Snow Fox
  • the collective nouns are a leash, a skulk and an earth

Well of course I’m going to dislike those collective nouns…duh! It’s perfectly clear that the collective noun for a group of Arctic Foxes should be a blizzard! Thoughts?
