The fantastic winter fox © Andy Trowbridge/Minden Pictures
Animals have many adaptations for winter weather, such as migration, hibernation, and growing thick fur. For the small but mighty Artic fox–the change in seasons means changing colors. Its thick fur coast transitions from brown and gray to a snowy white as a form of camouflage when colder temperatures arrive at its tundra habitat. Other animals that turn white in winter include the snowshoe hair, and several species of weasel–but we’re partial to this noble-looking fox. Stay warm, buddy!
