Pups are independent at four months old and leave their parents the following winter; Social Structure: Packs usually consist of 3-6 adults; Behavior: These animals do not hibernate despite the cold arctic winters; Status: No special status; Interesting Facts: A fox's thick winter coat helps keep its body temperature near 100 degrees.
