Photo: Arctic Fox Animal Picture

This unique animal named the Arctic Fox continued about his business in the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba while we snapped his picture.

In search of any remnants of food left by the Polar Bears, this Arctic Fox forages along the water's edge of the Hudson Bay in Churchill, Manitoba. Their main diet consists of lemmings, voles, squirrels, birds, berries, eggs and fish but a taste of some seal leftovers is what this animal is really on the prowl for.

The Arctic Fox has a beautiful coat of fur which is warmer than a Polar Bear's and thick fur throughout their paws making it easy for them to cross ice and snow. The snowy white fur of the Arctic Fox during the winter, brings out the darkness of their eyes and nose but the white coloring is necessary during this time to protect them from any prey.

During the summer, the Arctic Fox has a coat that is grayish brown which also helps them camouflage themselves when the weather is warmer and the seasons change. In this picture, you can still see the tinge of gray throughout the coat of the Arctic Fox. ... continue below the picture...

The Arctic Fox can survive in well below freezing temperatures and will travel aboard an ice floe to search for food. When it is time to rest, the Arctic Fox can easily curl up into a ball in the snow, cover its head with its tail and be easily missed by any passing Polar Bears.

This animal loves the cold Arctic climate over the warmer temperatures and resides around Churchill, Manitoba and for a few miles into the Boreal Forest. To capture a close up picture of the Arctic Fox, the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Churchill, Manitoba would be about your best option.
