The Difference Between

What is the difference between thin and thick soil?

Thick soil is usually low in nutrients, and expessially hard to dig or get through, because it has no density.

Thin soil, on the other hand, is mostly high in nutrients, and easy to shovel through because it is very dense.

Also, thin soil tends to be at the top, and thick soil, a little farther down.

What are some adaptations of the Arctic Fox?

The Arctic fox's fur can be gray/blue or white in the winter so that it blends into the landscape. Its coat then changes from gray/blue to a charcoal color and from white to a brown color as summer begins. This is so that they are still camouflaged when the snow melts. They need to be camouflaged so prey and predators cannot see them as well.

It has the warmest fur of any mammal which is even warmer than the polar bear. Their fur is also oily, which helps to trap in some of the heat and waterproof the fox.

Arctic foxes also have a compact body with short legs, short ears, dense fur, and thickly haired foot pads. Therefore the less surface area is exposed to the cold, less heat escapes the body. These not only help to insulate against the cold, but provide grip on the ice as well.

They also have a good supply of body fat to keep them warm. Their short ears prevent body heat loss so they can stay warm.

They have a long, thick, bushy tail so that when they curl up to go to sleep they can cover their face with it, to keep them warm.

The Arctic Fox has such a keen sense of hearing that it can locate the exact position of prey under the snow, before using its front paws to punch through the snow and catch it.

In the coldest parts of the arctic, some foxes have adapted to following polar bears to feed off the scraps they leave behind when they are hunting.
