DESCRIPTIONThis majestic full Artic Fox mount is beautifully mounted upon a natural piece of drift wood. The Artic Fox is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and common throughout the Arctic tundra biome. It is well adapted to living in cold environments. It has a deep thick fur which is brown in summer and white in winter. Its body length ranges from 18 to 27 inches, with a generally rounded body shape to minimize the escape of body heat.
The Arctic fox lives in some of the most frigid extremes on the planet but does not start to shiver until the temperature drops to −94 °F. Among its adaptations for survival in the cold is its dense, multilayered pelage, which provides excellent insulation, a system of countercurrent heat exchange in the circulation within the paws to retain core temperature, and a good supply of body fat. The fox has a low surface area to volume ratio, as evidenced by its generally compact body shape, short muzzle and legs, and short, thick ears.
