Did you know that the Artic Fox (Alopex lagopus) only has a white coat part of the year?

Did you know that the Artic Fox (Alopex lagopus) only has a white coat part of the year? I have raised a few Baby Artic Foxes and during the summer their Fur Coat is a dark brown or black. Artic Foxes in captivity have a lifespan of around 14 years but Wild Foxes on most cases do not live more then a few years. This longer lifespan in captivity is not uncommon amongst Wild Animals as they are guaranteed a high quality consistent diet and veterinary care. Unfortunately, Artic Fox Fur is widely sought after to manufacture Fur Coats, and these beautiful Artic Animals are hunted by trappers and natives for their white pelt in large numbers. Like other Fox Species, Artic Foxes are also raised in Fur Farms for their beautiful fur coats. REMEMBER, THE TIGERHOMES WEB SITE SPECIALIZES IN AMAZING EXOTIC ANIMAL WEB CAMS!
