Tails by Mouselemur Tails by Mouselemur
Photo taken in July, 2013 @ ZieZoo, The Netherlands

Before you start questioning this photo, this is Tails, a Red Fox of about 3.5 months old. Her mother had been shot and killed, leaving her all on her own. The Wildlife Rescue Care looked for a proper caretaker, and took her to this zoo.
They already have Corsac Foxes - you know Bat-Eared Foxes don't officially count as Foxes - so have gained some expertise in the matter.
They've decided to keep her and are keeping her close during shows so she'll get used to humans and people visiting the zoo, though she has a penchant to play and munch on everything, so she doesn't yet participate.
She's wearing a harness, so the zookeepers can handle her better when they let her out of her enclosure. Beware, she's still a wild animal, not a domesticated one.

Species: Red Fox (Rode vos)
Latin name: Vulpes Vulpes
Originates from the entire Northern Hemisphere, and has been introduced to Australia.
Current status: Least Concern
Did you know:
…The Red Fox is the largest of the three true Foxes, and the most geographically spread.
…It distinguishes itself in its ability to adapt quickly to new and changed environments, and is not enlisted as endangered anywhere.
…Despite its name, the Red Fox is known to appear in abnormal colorings, such as albinos and melanists.
