Arctic Fox Clipart Black And White

The Snowy Owl The Snowy Owl's scalloped black-edged blossoms fade away as winter approaches, leaving them nearly completely white. Snowy owls, like horned owls, have ear tufts, but they are little and normally tucked away, so they are not obvious. These flying predators are among the biggest owl species, having wingspans up to 59 inches wide. Snowy owls are known to be migratory, adapting to changes in food supply, often settling below the Arctic circle to get access to favorable hunting sites.

Arctic foxes jump straight into the air, then right down on top of their prey after they've spotted their next meal. Arctic foxes work hard in the autumn to store body fat, increasing their weight by up to 50%. During the winter, when food is limited, Arctic foxes will often follow polar bears about, scavenge what they can from their remaining carcasses.

White foxes, polar foxes, and snow foxes are all names for Arctic foxes. Adult males are referred to as dogs, while females are referred to as vixens. A group of these foxes is referred to as a skulk or leash. Tiriganiarjuk, which translates to "small white one," is the Inuit term for Arctic fox. The species name translates to "one who wanders a lot" in several native languages.

Morphs in Silver and Black

Red foxes may be silver or black in hue. Silver foxes have silver-like hair as well as black fur. The majority of silver foxes have black on their ears, noses, and legs. They, like other red foxes, have white tails. The white/silver color is caused by clumps of guard hairs.
