Arctic Foxes are Ready for the Cold

The Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) is built for the freezing cold; their thick fur has many layers that keep them warm in temperatures as low as -70 C. They also have fur on the pads of their feet, and shorter limbs and ears to keep them from losing heat in this extreme Arctic world.
