Animals in a subarctic climate have to be well-adapted to the cold, with extra layers of fat and thick fur. Some of the world's largest hunters live within the Arctic Circle: bears and wolves, and smaller ones such as wolverines, red and arctic foxes, and lynxes. They hunt herd animals such as caribou, moose, elk, reindeer, musk oxen, mountain goats, Dall sheep and deer. There are no reptiles - whose ectothermic metabolism means they cannot adapt to the cold - but there are a host of small mammals: snowshoe hares, beavers, river otters, mice, rats, lemmings, voles and squirrels.

what is soil profiling?
Weegy: Soil Profile refers to the layers of soil; horizon A, B, and C. If you're wondering what horizon A is, here's your answer: horizon A refers to the upper layer of soil, nearest the surface. It is commonly known as topsoil. [ In the woods or other areas that have not been plowed or tilled, this layer would probably include organic litter, such as fallen leaves and twigs . The litter helps prevent erosion, holds moisture, and decays to form a very rich soil known as humus. Horizon A provides plants with nutrients they need for a great life. The layer below horizon A, of course, has to be horizon B. Litter is not present in horizon B and therefore there is much less humus. Horizon B does contain some elements from horizon A because of the process of leaching. Leaching resembles what happens in a coffee pot as the water drips through the coffee grounds. Leaching may also bring some minerals from horizon B down to horizon C. If horizon B is below horizon A, then horizon C must be below horizon B. Horizon C consists mostly of weatherized big rocks. This solid rock, as you discovered in Soil Formation, gave rise to the horizons above it. Soil profiles look different in different areas of the world. They are affected by climate and other things. ] (More)

Soil Profiling can be defined as a vertical arrangement of the soil from the bottom surface downwardly to where the soil meets the underlying rock.
