Fennec foxes, native to North Africa and the Sahara desert, are distinguished by their large ears, which serve to dissipate their body heat. These ears give them such good hearing that they can even hear their prey moving under the sand. Their cream-colored fur helps them deflect heat during the day and stay warm at night.

The silver fox is actually the same species as the red fox – they simply have different pigmentation variations. The silver fox was, at on time, one of the most valuable fur foxes that could be found. They are still bred and farmed for their fur. (Image credits: Matt Knoth)

The arctic fox can be found throughout the Arctic Circle. Their thick fur keeps them from shivering in temperatures as low as -70 degrees Celsius (-94 Fahrenheit). These foxes have relatively short legs and snouts, which helps keep their surface area down and retain heat.
