Arctic Fox

We just learned about the Chameleon.

The arctic fox's fur changes color from brown in the summer, to white in the winter!

It does this of course to blend in to the snow so it can hide from predators or prey.

The arctic fox also has super great hearing.
If there is an animal buried underneath the snow, the fox can listen to find exactly where it is,
then pounce down into the snow and get it!
