ARCTIC FOX PICTURES
Arctic Fox Habitat.
The arctic fox is also known by two other names, snow fox and polar fox. It looks so adorable that you don’t want to take pictures of the arctic fox but instead take it home as a pet. It survives in frigid Arctic temperatures are as low as –58°F above the treeline where it makes its home. The snow fox has a specialized body that adapted to living in a harsh climate. The snow fox also blends beautifully with its surroundings, in their native Tundra. Its fur changes color with the seasons, during the summer they have a brown or gray look to provide cover amongst the rocks and plants, during the winter they are all white to blend in with snow and ice. The only canid whose foot pads are covered in fur.
Firstly, in the summer taking pictures of the arctic fox is a lot different as they hunt for themselves, they will hunt rodents, birds, and fish and we can follow them without any threat. During the winter times, since food is difficult to get they follow predators such as polar bears, arctic wolves to eat their leftovers. During the breeding season, arctic foxes form monogamous pairs and they stay together to raise their young. They live in underground dens. Occasionally, other family members may assist in raising their young. Natural predators of the Arctic fox are golden eagles, wolves, wolverines, polar bears, and also grizzly bears.
Since they live in such cold climate, to prevent heat loss, the Arctic fox curls up tucking its head and legs under its body and behind its tail. This way the fox gets the smallest surface area to volume ratio and also protects the least insulated areas which make for a great arctic fox picture. The average head and body length of the male is 22 in, with a range of 18 to 27 in, while the female is very similar in size. In some regions, no difference in size is seen between males and females.

How climate change affects the Arctic fox.
As I went out to capture these Arctic Fox pictures, I’ve come across some important facts. Arctic foxes are facing a big threat from climate change. Its frozen home in the Tundra is shrinking, its prey is also becoming less abundant. Because climate change forces other animals to move up north, the native Arctic foxes face displacement. They are not endangered in America but are Critically Endangered in specific locations in Norway, Finland, and Sweden,
How the Arctic Fox Picture will help animals affected by climate change.
We have done a lot of damage to our environment and also the animals living on our planet; I want to actively take part in the solution of slowing down the rapidly happening global warming, which led me to work with conservation groups and also organizations that actively work hard at finding solutions.
As a fashion photographer, I pay the models. As a wildlife photographer, I can not pay the animals I photograph. Therefore, all the part of the sale proceeds from the arctic fox pictures is given to conservation organizations. The Wolf Conservation Center, Cana Foundation, California Wolf Center, and also World Animal Protection are part of these organizations. You will have one of nature’s most beautiful animal on your wall, and you will also help them.
