Transcript of Siberian Husky

By Charlotte Austin, Lizzie Hall and Francesca Froughi Siberian Husky and Fennec Fox Appearance of the Siberian husky Habitat of Siberian Huskies Adaptations of the Siberian Husky Appearance of the Fennec Fox The Siberian husky is a medium-size dog with a full, soft undercoat and an outercoat that falls back slightly against the body. The coat color varies: It may be gray, tan, black, white or copper. Though the Siberian husky's eyes are most often blue, they may also be brown, one of each color or have patches of colors. The ears point straight up and are set fairly close together on top of the head. As the name suggests a Siberian Husky's natural environment is Siberia. This means extreme cold, large amounts of ice and snow, and depending on the part of Siberia, can be densely forested. Although the Husky would seek out colder areas, it is adaptable and it's habitat would be anywhere with enough food and water for it survive.
* Thick double coat allows them to live and thrive in subzero temperatures.
* Small, thickly-furred ears keep in body heat
* Almond shaped eyes - the shape protects the eyeball from wind chill and ice debris.
* Moderate-length muzzle allows enough space to warm the arctic air breathed in before it reaches the lungs.
* Efficient, hardy digestive system allows the dog to live and work on very little food, since food was a often scarce among the hunting tribes that developed the breed. Fennec foxes usually have cream-coloured
fur with black-tipped tails. They are the
smallest specie of fox in the world, but have
enormous ears that have been said to have been given to them by a larger relative. However, the fennec fox's adorable appearance makes them more likely to be captured and sold into the pet trade. Local people also kill the fennec foxes for their fur. Habitat of the fennec fox Fennec foxes are commonly found in the sandy Sahara and other countries
in North Africa. They are nocturnal creatures which helps them deal with the extreme heat of their desert environment, but physical adaptations help them to survive too. Adaptations of fennec foxes Fennec foxes have extremely large ears that help to lose body heat and stay cool in the desert climate. Also, their sandy fur helps to reflect heat and provides camouflage from predators. Fennec foxes also thick fur on the soles of their feet, which insulate their feet from the hot sand and gives them excellent grip on the loose sand.
