arctic-fox-plush-toy-stuffed-animalArctic fox cuddly soft toy stuffed animalAlthough it is estimated that several hundred thousand snow foxes live worldwide, in the far north of Europe, Russia, Canada and Greenland, it is one of the animal species most threatened by climate change. This is because its natural habitat in tundra and permafrost regions is becoming smaller, while at the same time the larger red fox is encroaching on its territory as a competitor. The ice fox is in fact a small fox species that usually grows to about 60 cm, not counting its bushy tail.

Its beautiful fur, which is brilliant white in winter and gray-brown in summer, has unfortunately always been popular among fur hunters- so it's better to be able to admire the beautiful animals in a lifelike and lovingly designed plush toy version.

The fur of the real ice fox consists to a large extent of warming undercoat and is the densest fur of all mammal species, which is even found on the paws of the snow fox. Thus, even in the iciest Arctic temperatures of minus 50 degrees, he stays warm and does not get cold feet. He also has a rather short snout and small eyes and ears, which further protects the fox from the cold.

Arctic foxes are predators and omnivores. However, their favorite food includes lemmings and other types of mice. With their good sense of smell, you can track the rodents even under the snow cover. But also polar hares, birds and their eggs he does not spurn. And if they live near coasts, they also eat fish and crustaceans. If the food supply is scarce, berries and insects are also on the menu. Sometimes they stay near polar bears to eat the remains of their prey. Even though polar bears and also wolves are among its natural enemies. The snow fox is territorial and the size of its territory depends on the available food supply.

In spring, the polar fox goes in search of mates. The fox pairs stay together for the rest of their lives. The maximum of about ten young foxes are raised in large cave systems with many entrances, which they dig or which may already exist and are sometimes used over many arctic fox generations.
