The Snow Fox are a species of fox that can be found in the colder areas and higher elevations of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Snow foxes are passive animals that can often be seen hunting small game (such as rabbits) and generally flee when approached by anything larger than themselves. They are prey to the larger beasts of the northern tundra, such as snow bears, ice wolves and snowy sabre cats. They will not attack the Dragonborn unless possessed by a spriggan or affected by Frenzy.

Unique Snow FoxesEdit


  • With Hearthfire installed, a snow fox kit named Vix may be brought home by an adopted child as a pet, though its name is only revealed if it dies.
  • Snow Foxes are based on the Arctic foxes found in Greenland, Iceland, and the Arctic Circle.
