7 Amazing Winter Wildlife Animals

Winter is basically here, so we thought we’d share with ya’ll 7 unique Winter wildlife animals in respect of the animals strong enough to handle these brutal Winter temperatures.

These creatures are all particularly outfitted to survive in ridiculously cold temperatures, many in the arctic or Antarctic regions (very far up North or South where most humans couldn’t survive).

Arctic Hare

The arctic hare is a species of hare which is highly adapted to living in the Arctic tundra and other freezing cold places.

They have shortened ears & limbs, as well as a small nose and fat which makes up 20% of its body.

Of course it also has a very thick fur coat in order to keep warm.

In order to survive when the temperatures get dangerously cold it will dig holes in the ground or under snow in order to keep warm & sleep.

Arctic Fox

The arctic fox is also referred to as the white fox, snow fox, or polar fox.

It is native to the arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Arctic foxes are well adapted to living in cold environments, and are best known for its thick, warm fur that is also used as camouflage.

Arctic foxes are extremely white in order to blend in and hide from predators.

One interesting fact about the arctic fox is that during breeding season arctic foxes form monogamous pairs, much like how humans create bonds & stick together as well.

The pair works together in raising their young, and other family members may even assist in raising their young!

Harp Seal

Harp seals look fascinating because their eyes are pure black.

They look silver-gray, but newborn harp seals will have a yellow-white fur coat. After a few days the fur coat will turn white, and then after about a month the harp seal gets a silver-gray coat spotted with black like the rest of the harp seals.

Harp Seals are typically hunted by polar bears.

Muskox

The muskox (also spelled musk ox or musk-ox) is an arctic hoofed mammal, noted for its thick coat and for a strong odor emitted by males in order to attract females.

Its Inuktitut name “umingmak” translates to “the bearded one.”

They primarily live in Greenland & Northern Canada, as well as a bit of Alaska.

Polar Bear

The polar bear is a hyper carnivorous bear and they spend the majority of their time floating on arctic ice.

They can swim in the freezing cold water for impressive lengths of time, and for as far as over 100 miles (even longer too)!

We’ve previously made a video about polar bears which you can find by clicking HERE now: https://youtu.be/paDGUml2fTQ

Siberian Tigers

As the name foretells, the Siberian Tiger can primarily be found in Eastern Russia in the area referred to as “Siberia.”

The Siberian Tiger population is decreasing, and may potentially soon become extinct.

Penguins

Everyone knows & loves penguins! Penguins can be found only on Antarctica, and they’re one of the few animals to exist there.

Penguins are absolutely adorable, and very fast swimmers. The “emperor penguins” are also relatively tall, standing at about an average of 1.1 meters or 3 feet 7 inches.

The larger penguins can handle colder temperatures, whereas the smaller penguins will hang out in warmer regions.

 

We hope ya’ll enjoyed this post- thanks for reading! What is your favorite Winter wildlife animal?
