Their range is in the arctic, alpine tundra and ice-covered seas of North America and Eurasia. Its diet is lemmings, mice, ground squirrels, birds and eggs, fish, insects, and carrion. The Arctic foxes status is secure, many thousands are trapped annually for their fur. This is a small fox, averaging no more than a house cat, approx. 3.5 kgs. The short brown summer coat molts into a luxurious white coat in the autumn, which keeps the animal warm down to -50C. High activity and great endurance are vital for the fox to find food in an impoverished landscape and on sea ice. The species makes the longest journeys of any land mammal, with records up to 2000 kms. When lemmings are scarce, large numbers of these foxes migrate into the boreal forest in search of food.
