Arctic Fox Description
  The Arctic fox is about the size of an ordinary domesticated house cat. Its fur is long and is white in the winter months and turns bluish or gray in the summer months. Its feet are lined with fur which helps conserve heat. Their heads have a stubby muzzle, small ears, and large eyes. They have short legs and a long bushy tail that the fox uses for insulation by wrapping it around itself when sleeping.
