Incredible Journey of an Arctic Fox

Long trek through the frozen North short: A lone young female Arctic fox, just shy of her first birthday, traveled more than 2,700 miles from Spitsbergen, the largest island of the Svalbard Archipelago of Norway, to Ellesmere Island in Nunavut, Canada. The journey took four months.
