Fat is an insulator. So, it prevents warmth from escaping the body and ,thus, helps in cold weather/surrounding.

As we know that fat molecules are insulators or technically we can say that they are bad conductors.

The animals living in cold regions have various layers of fats so that their body can maintain the temperature of their body & also this fats doesnt allow the internal heat to get escape from their body

The climate is cold in north and south poles . So these animals have a thick day coating on their body so their body temperature will be maintained. The day will not allow the internal heat to escape.
