Photo: Snow White Arctic Fox Hudson Bay Tundra Churchill

The fur of the Arctic Fox is snow white in color during the winter months where it can easily wander along the tundra around the Hudson Bay in Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Manitoba, Canada without catching the attention of any predators.

The frozen tundra of the Churchill Wildlife Management Area in Manitoba, Canada can sometimes make foraging for food difficult for an Arctic Fox. The snow white colored fur on an Arctic Fox is thick and warm which also encompasses their paws to make it easier to walk across the ice and snow along the shores of the Hudson Bay.

The coat on the Arctic Fox protects this animal, which is warmer than that on a Polar Bear, and will keep the fox warm in well below freezing temperatures. For a short nap or a rest, the Arctic Fox can curl into a ball in the snow and hide its head with its tail, making it hard for Polar Bears or other predators to spot it. When winter comes to an end and the weather slowly begins to warm up, the white coloring on the Arctic Fox will change to a grayish brown hue for camouflage.
