White Foxes by Atqaan
Before they learned to use camouflage, the white fox was always brown. He lived in the arctic where it was winter most of the year.
The brown fox wasn’t able to catch any prey. So, he rolled around in the snow and he turned white. He blended in with the snow and finally caught something good to eat. The snow would begin to wear off and he’d have to cover up again and again. Soon his fur began to grow in white. He liked being white automatically.
In the spring and summer his white fur was a problem. He wished that he was brown again. So, he rolled around in the mud and he turned brown. He blended in with the tundra and finally caught something good to eat. The mud would wear off and he’d have to cover up again and again. Soon his fur began to grown in brown. He liked being brown automatically.
When it was winter again his fur turned white. He liked that his fur always camouflages him now. That is how the white fox got his camouflage.
