Arctic Fox (Alopex Lagopus), Lena Delta
The Arctic Fox is quite small - up to 60cm long with a tail around 30cm. Their winter fur is thick and long to protect from the icy winters in the Tundra. There is considerable contact between species of Arctic Fox and they often cross Arctic sea ice in order to move between land masses.
