    The precipitation is six to ten inches a year including melted snow.
    Soil- The soil in the tundra is poor in nutrients and has low amounts of vegetation. There is an under layer of soil called permafrost which remains completely frozen at all times and allows little room for deep rooting plants and trees.The plants that survive the frozen landscapes are extremely resilient, and their roots are close to the surface of the hard soil to intake the little amount of water that falls on the ground.

    Polar Bears- Since they live in cold areas they depend on a thick coat of insulated fur. Fur grows on the bottom of their paws and provides a good grip on ice. polar bears have a white coat that provides camouflage but under their fur, polar bears have black skin to soak in the suns warming rays. {http://www.polarbearsinternational.org/sites/default/files/styles/media_full/public/00473-06209.jpg?itok=LHRBSeKy}

    Arctic Hare: The Arctic Hare has long front claws. They use their strong claws to dig in the hard packed snow. Their coat grows longer and thicker for the winter. The Hare has a short thick undercoat protected by a longer coat on top. They have short ears so they don't have to loose a lot of body heat.

    Snow Geese: When the winter is ending snow geese fly north to their breeding place on the Arctic tundra. Families stay together through the young's first winter. Snow geese fly in a V form to reduce wind drag and risk of collision.
