Photo taken in July, 2012 @ Zoo Dierenrijk, The Netherlands
Cropped the photo a bit; it used to be upright, but there was a lot of nothing. Adjusted the colors a bit, too.
Missy the Arctic Fox doesn't even take the effort to actually stand up to stretch; she's practically still lying on her belly while she stretches so beautifully.
Even in Summer, she manages to look stunning
Sad thing to realize she's gone now - escaped the zoo, so have no idea how she ended up...

Latin name: Vulpes Lagopus

Did you know:
…Arctic Foxes shed their white fur in Summertime, for a shorter, grey or brown fur coat.
…Their body is generally of a round shape, as to minimize the escape of body heat.
I love it when you love my work, but please, if you want to use it in any other medium, ask my permission first.
