And the Gremlin Yawned by Mouselemur And the Gremlin Yawned by Mouselemur
Photo taken in mid December, 2012 @ Zoo Dierenrijk, The Netherlands

EDITED
Finally had a chance to do it :D

I used this photo as an entry to the contest at Zoo-photographers, Best Photographer of the Year 2012. What can I say, I just really like Foxes, and I can go see these Corsacs often as the zoo is close to home.
Secondly, Corsac Foxes are just precious :aww:
It was actually quite the surprise to find six Corsac Foxes in the enclosure, as the couple'd had four kits during the Summer. Seeing the whole family together was great :D They stayed incredibly close to the glass, like this guy.
He didn't really bother looking up, in fact seemed more bored by our presence - hence the yawn ;) He was so cool while doing it, his ears turned back Gremlin style.
Actually, I think his ears are perpetually set like this, because I took more photos, of all six of them, and the one with ears like this kept turning up, even not yawning.

Species: Corsac Fox (Steppevos)

Latin name: Vulpes Corsac

Originates from Central Asia.

Current status: Least Concern.

 Did you know:

…The fur of the Corsac Fox changes during Winter, not unlike that of the Arctic Fox.

…It’s coat becomes much thicker, and more silky in texture, and becomes stray-grey in color, with a darker line running down the back; this compared to the yellowish fur during Summer, with pale underparts, and markings on mouth, chin and throat.
