Postcard Of A Arctic Fox (Alopex Iagopus) North America Wildlife The Arctic Fox has a compact body with short legs and ears for easy adaption to the subzero temperature. Its dense fur and thickly haired foot pads insulate against the cold and provide traction on ice. It stores surplus food by clawing through the soil and deep-freezing it on the permafrost below.
