How do Arctic foxes behave?

Actually, they behave surprisingly similar to your regular foxes. However, you tend to find that they have an extensive baroreceptor reflex to mediate vasocontriction. This is because it is cold in the arctic and shivering due to vasocontriction helps keep them warm.

Also, their paws are larger with longer claws to make it easier to walk on ice.
