Description

Adorable baby polar / arctic fox (alopex lagopus, liska polarni, pesec) pup from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :aww: this kit was looking at me very curiously - I can not say, how much I love this cub :aww:

FUR ON YOUR BACK IS BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS!
____________


INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: polar/arctic fox (alopex lagopus)
Location: north of Eurasia, North America, Greenland
Size: 67 cm long body, 30 cm high, 40 cm long tail weight: 5 - 9 kg
Diet: lemmings, Arctic Hare, eggs, and carrion, but polar foxes eat also birds, baby seals and fish. Foxes are able to hide their prey to find and eat it later.
Conservation status: Least Concern (only population in Scandinavia is endangered)
Interesting facts: polar foxes change their fur. They are white in winter, but then start to lose their fluffy white coat. In summer, they are dark grey and much less fluffy | because they live in cold weather, their snouts and ears are very short | polar foxes tend to form monogamous pairs in breeding season. Females give birth to 4-8 pups and both parents take care of the babies | some foxes are called ,,blue foxes“ due special colour or their coat | polar foxes are able to survive temperature – 80°C! | polar foxes often follow polar bears to eat rest of bear’s prey | polar foxes have thick fur even on their paws – that’s why they can walk on ice

Foxes are my absolute favorite animals, when I saw this curious arctic fox kit stare at the camera like this, I died from the cuteness, such a sweet little face he has, so curious, so innocent. I've worked with foxes for well over a year and I can tell you that they are a very, very unique species of animal to work with, but the ones I've worked with are hand-raised and very friendly around people, thank you for spreading the cuteness, for spreading pictures like this. Oh man, such a fluffy wuffy foxy he is, so bloody adorable and so lovely!
