According to the accompanying certificate:-
The Arctic Fox
The arctic fox (Alopex Lagopus), also known as the white fox, is found throughout the arctic circumpolar lands of the northern hemisphere.
With its compact body form, well-furred ears, and thick hair on the soles of its feet, it is perfectly equipped for life in the higher latitudes of North America. In fact, no other canid species lives as far north. Lemmings are its primary food source, but this clever fox also knows it will likely find leftovers from a polar bear's seal kill if it ventures onto the sea ice. In such a harsh environment where food is scarce, scavenging is a key survival skill! It is normally a solitary animal, except during the mating season or when it is lured to a feast.
As an opportunist, the arctic fox is very curious and will rarely run when it spots humans. It usually approaches to have a closer look!
All the reverse designs are by the Canadian wildlife artist Claudio D'Angelo.
|One Ounce||A vixen and her three whelps in their summer pelage (coat).|
|Half Ounce||A lone fox surrounded by a land of ice.|
|Quarter Ounce||Two grown foxes in their natural habitat.|
|Tenth Ounce||The graceful profile of a fox.|
