Why I Chose My Animal? I chose my animal an arctic fox because it is an amassing animal.
Appearance The Arctic Fox is very cool. An arctic fox has a nose and ears of course, but they are close to the head! The Arctic Fox has a Fluffy tail that they use for a reason. It has it because that tail helps it keep warm. It is so soft that it is like a blanket. An Arctic Fox is cool in many ways. You might think an Arctic Fox is just an Arctic Fox, but it is much more, it has all of these cool traits to help it survive.
Habitat Do you know an Arctic Fox lives in the Arctic? An arctic fox lives where there are no trees (called tree-less.) During most of the winter the sun doesn't rise. It is dark 24 hours a day. If you thought they live in the arctic you might be right.
Family The momma arctic fox can have more than 10 pups. Did you know that pups are also called Kit's. A group of baby foxes is called a litter. When a fox is born, it cannot see or hear. The pups mother and father take turns on watching the pups while the other hunts for food. The mother and fathers protection helps keep them safe especially since they can't see or hear!
