A group of foxes is called a “skulk” or a “leash.”
The fur of the Arctic fox changes twice yearly. The winter fur is thicker and entirely white, providing camouflage against snow and ice; the summer coat is gray and brown, blending in with the tundra and grassy hills.
Because of their shy nature, nocturnal tendencies and excellent camouflage, wild clouded leopards are rarely seen by people.
Each tentacle contains thousands of chemical receptors.
They are named for the greenish color of their cartilage and fat, not the color of their shells.
Their whiskers detect sound waves, which helps them locate prey.
