The white coat of the Arctic Fox is a camouflage tactic during the winter season which will protect them from other animals looking for a good meal. A usual diet of an Arctic Fox is lemmings, voles, squirrels, birds, berries, fish and eggs but they are often seen foraging along the frozen shore of the Hudson Bay for any delicacies like a ringed seal.
