Arctic Blue Fox Cubs are so adorable. Native to Greenland, Iceland, Scandinavia and lots more countries across the Northern Hemisphere. There are two races of the Arctic fox, the white and the blue, both change colour during the summer and winter.
The blue Arctic fox changes from a dark grey-brown summer coat to a grey-black coat in the winter with a bluish tinge.

A female Arctic fox normally gives birth to 4-5 cubs in the Summer months when their is plenty of food around. She will give birth in an underground den and when the cubs are around 4 weeks old they start to explore the entrance to there den sometimes even outside under the watchful eye mom.

Dad fox also helps with the rearing of the cubs and he has been seen bringing back all sorts of tasty treats for his cubs like lemmings, small birds, big birds like seagulls, rodents etc. At only 9 weeks old all cubs are weaned and eating solid food.
