Few of these pictures may just seem like animals are freezing, however thatâ€™s not 100% sure. Generally, the photographers are probably colder than the animals that theyâ€™ve photographed.
Mammals like foxes, cats and different furred critters need to handle regular body temperatures, so they frequently accrue stores of body fats and develop extra coats of winter fur to assist themselves to deal with the cold.
These winter coats create an additional layer of insulating air between their skin and the chilly air outside, and sometimes even develop in white to help them camouflage themselves of their new surroundings. Any individual with a breed of canine that has adapted to the cold, like a husky, knows how furry things can get after they begin shedding their winter coats.
