A resourceful scavenger and a prolific hunter, the Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) is the smallest member of the Canidae family to be found in Canada's wilderness. It is also the only canine whose coat undergoes a dramatic seasonal change, from a short, brown summer pelt to the dense, snow-white winter coat that is unmatched for warmth. Moving on land or across the ice floes, the Arctic fox hunts for lemmings throughout the seasons, plunging through the snow to catch its tunnelling prey; when these are scarce, the fox travels far and wide to sustain itself on birds, eggs, fish and even leftovers from a polar bear's kill. Stealthy and elusive, the Arctic fox's ability to blend in with its surroundings makes it a powerful symbol of adaptability and survival in Canada's Far North.
