In a snow storm, it rolls itself up tightly and covers its face with its tail for protection.
In winter the arctic fox has a white coat and in summer the colour changes to grey or brown. This gives it camouflage as well as providing protection from the cold, making it ideally suited for its environment. The soles of its feet are just as hairy as the rest of his body. This means that it can withstand icy temperatures on its long journeys unscathed. Arctic foxes live a maximum of 10 years.

Foxes can jump one yard vertically.
Described as a cat-like canine, foxes have eyes similar to a cat's and like to pounce on their prey. Thanks to their keen sense of hearing, foxes can pounce with precision, knowing exactly where dinner is. Although they are generally nocturnal, foxes can change their schedule according to the human population where it resides. Living in dens, both male and female foxes help to raise their young, called kits. Instilling life skills, foxes live by standards that include burying uneaten food, saving it for later. Foxes are generally about three feet long, weighing around thirty pounds.

Simmental cattle have been documented since the Middle Ages.
Originally from the valley of the Simme River in Switzerland, Simmental cattle are one of the oldest and most distributed cattle breeds. A part of the creation of other breeds, Simmental cattle have many desirable traits that have led to the success of many breeds in Europe. Their best traits include their use as draught animals as well as their use in beef and in dairy. With quickly growing calves, this breed is prized for its maturity.

The hairs in a Dalmatian's coat are barbed, making them stick to almost any type of fabric.
Dalmatians are named after the region they're from -- Dalmatia, an area in Croatia along the Adriatic Sea. Puppies are completely white when they're born. They develop their own unique pattern of dark brown or black spots within a few weeks. Eye color may be brown, blue, or a combination thereof. Ten percent of Dalmatians are born deaf, but that doesn't stop them from doing their jobs: for thousands of years Dalmatians worked as carriage dogs-they walked alongside horse-drawn chariots and then carriages, encouraging the horses to move forward. Before the motorized car was invented, fire trucks were actually just horse-drawn vehicles, and the Dalmatian urged the horses to run as fast as they could to the blazing fires. Nowadays, they're just along for the ride.

Because of their funny appearance, Shropshire sheep have been made into heroes of various children's series for quite some time. They have amusing adventures as clay figurines.
Shropshire sheep are an old English domesticated breed with a light-coloured coat and a dark-coloured head. These animals are very low-maintenance which is why they're very popular with the farmers. Farmers happily let them graze amongst fruit and conifer crops since they don't chew up the young shoots.

Zebras have night vision which helps them to keep an eye on their predators.
These sleek, striped equids live in the savannah grasslands of eastern and southern Africa where they spend most of the day grazing on grass, leaves, bark, roots, and stems. Each zebra's pattern of stripes is unique. The plains, or common, zebra sport wide stripes on their bodies -- that continue to the undersides -- along with thinner 'shadow' stripes on their hind quarters. Their excellent hearing and vision help them escape predators. They usually live in family groups of one stallion and several mares but often come together in large herds of several hundred zebras. And, once a year, hundreds of thousands of zebras gather to migrate in search of food and water. These herds sometimes mingle with wildebeests, ostrich, and antelope. Zebras tend to be pretty skittish -- who can blame them with all the lions and hyenas around -- and really noisy. Their whinnies, yelps, and barks are their way of communicating with each other. They never wander too far from a source of water and can live about thirty years in the wild.

Internationally, there are more chickens than any other fowl.
Popular for their eggs and meat, chickens can be housed at a home, at a farm or by the thousands. For its health benefits and supply, chicken is consumed across the globe. As omnivores, chickens eat insects, seeds, and even mice and lizards. Throughout a three week long incubation, hens incubate and rotate their eggs, fertilized or not. Living up to a decade, chickens generally stay on land but have been known to fly in short bursts. As a flock, chickens abide by a pecking order. This way, the dominant birds always get first choice.

Asian elephants can be tamed. They are often used as working animals.
Asian elephants look similar to African elephants, but with shorter tusks and smaller ears. These elephants never stay more than a few days in one place and have different habitants which are, however, always near thicket forests. Asian elephants live in family groups made up of two to ten elephants. Like with African elephants, the groups are led by an alpha female who makes sure that all members of the herd follow the group's rules. Experts think that elephants, thanks to their large brains, can empathize with other herd members and are able to retain information with ease such as the difference between individuals, memories of a drought or the location of good feeding grounds.
