The Arctic Fox has made its only appearance in the Game, School of Dragons.
The Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus) is a species of fox that lives in the cold climates of the Arctic circle, meaning that it would likely have been seen by historical Vikings. It is extremely well adapted to the cold, with thick fur and small ears to trap in heat. It's insulation is so strong that the fox only starts to shiver at -70°C. The Arctic Fox's coat changes with the seasons. During the colder months, the fox's coat is thick and white, while the coat is thinner and more brown in the summer months.
While in the Game School of Dragons Arctic Foxes are kept as livestock, in reality they are wild animals and not kept in any way other than perhaps zoos.
As in the game, Arctic foxes are coveted for their fur in real life. Unfortunately, this involves hunting or trapping the foxes, killing them and skinning them. In School of Dragons, collecting fox fur is presented in a much more humane way, and is collected simply by "harvesting" shed fur.
- "Arctic Foxes are omnivores and will eat anything from fish to berries."
