In summer food is plentiful and this couple lives off the birdlife that visits the area. Some of that is saved and dug down in many different places for this time of year. Every time he comes back to their little home range, they greet each other with barking and screaming. Arctic foxes usually mate for life. And here I think we’ve seen true love. 🌎 The Arctic fox is definitely one of our favorite animals to work with. It doesn’t really have any enemies, and it is of the curious kind, so it often comes up quite close to check us out. • A true survivor, the Arctic fox has evolved and adapted exceptionally well to life in the most frigid extremes on the planet. Its thick winter fur has the highest insulation factor of all Arctic mammals. • The Arctic fox is a scavenger and will eat almost anything it finds. In summer, it is dependent on the birdlife that visits the Arctic. It consumes the birds’ eggs and chicks, as well as lemmings and rodents, and builds up a storage of food to last over the long winter. In winter, some foxes also follow polar bears on the ice to feed on leftovers. The fox is monogamous, and each pair establishes a territory, or home range, that they always return to, even after following the polar bear for hundreds of miles through the coldest months of the year.
