Hello. My name is Hunter. My brothers Sneak, Tundra, and The Scavenger have abandoned me. I am now a loner as I make my way to the mating ground. I will now tell you about me. I am an arctic fox. My favorite food is a nice, juicy, lemming. Lemmings are a very cute animal. They are small, so you can not see them in the winter. They are dying, so we will not have much food. Sure, we can eat other gizmos, but these are plentiful and flavorful. We can eat voles, carrion, and veggies, but only in the case of an emergency. Now that I’ve told you this, will you save lemmings for us? Thank you. We live in burrows. Sometimes we go down there in the winter, even though we do not hibernate and can survive in temperatures of 50º. Would you like to hear my predators? My predators are polar bears and wolf packs. I once had a close contretemps with a snowy owl as a baby. I would now like to tell you some cool facts about me.
- I live on a large territory of about 10 miles.
- I live for 3-6 years.
- My mate will produce up to 25 pups.
- We are not carnivores-we are omnivores.
