Answer:

They get smaller.

Explanation:

The length of the Equator is 24,901 miles (the circumference of the Earth). As you move away from the Equator every degree latitude is a little smaller as you are no longer measuring the Earth circumference at the Earth's widest point. The North Pole is 90 degrees north latitude and is actually just a point.
