You are at the north pole would you be in an arctic or antarctic?
You would be in the Arctic Region. Antarctic is the south polar region.
Neither. There are no actual animals at either the North Pole or the South Pole. However, there are numerous species of animals which live within the Arctic and Antarctic. The North Pole is just a floating ice shelf, and unable to support life. The South Pole sits too far inland at the Antarctic for animals to venture there. For animals which live at the Arctic and Antarctic, see the related questions below.
