The wildlife on Svalbard has had to adapt to the harsh living conditions in the Arctic. Here the animals are exposed to extreme cold, periods with little food and a long winter without daylight. Svalbard only has two species of land mammals; the arctic fox and Svalbard reindeer. The polar bear spends most of its life on the drift ice and is therefore considered a marine mammal.
