The white fox was found throughout the temperate highlands and northern plains of Middle-earth.
Actually only white in winter, the white fox's dense pelt was normally a bright, silvery grey. The long hairs readily picked up grass pollen, often causing it, like the Grass Cats to appear to be a strange light green in color. Even during the winter, the coat was adorned with black-tipped guard hairs that lent it silvery gleam, so the fox was hardly ever really white.
