Arctic Fox (Alopex lagopus), captured Barnacle Goose (Branta leucopsis), Ny Ålesund, Svalbard

Year: 2010
From collection: Arctic Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The Arctic fox can survive temperatures as low as -50 C in the treeless environment of the Arctic Tundra. The fur on the bottom of it's feet help to keep in the warmth in such extreme conditions. It will hunt lemmings that are beneath the snow or scavenge from remains left by polar bears and wolves.
