#21 I had to do some digging on this one. "Native" in this case, means that the arctic fox is the only land animal on Iceland that have not been brought there by man. @Gorfian, birds, eggs and leftovers from polar bear meals, may have been the original diet before the arrival of humans on Iceland. The passage in this post seem to come from Wikipedia, here is the source for that "fact": http://web.archive.org/web/20100414112114/http://www.iww.is/pages/alife/biglf.ht

(there seem to be a bug in the comment formatting which break URL's)

Here is some better info about this great animal: http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/899/0
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.

#9 "fennec foxes feature furry feet"... that'll be my tongue-twister for the week. :P

@gorfian,
not sure i understand your question. arctic foxes and their ancestors would have been typically meat-eating / omnivorous back through the early caniforms (the 'dog' branch) and all the way to the earliest carnivoran ancestors right through to the miacids, which they evolved from.

so we're talking 40 - 60 million years of mainly meat eating. occasionally there's a vegeterian carnivoran, like the panda bear, but they are quite rare AFAIK.
