The Photogenic One by Mouselemur The Photogenic One by Mouselemur
Photo taken in January, 2013 @ Zoo Dierenrijk, The Netherlands

EDITED
The colors were a bit much, so I toned them down a bit.

I love this particular Arctic Fox for her coloring and expression; she's simply stunning. I've never caught her on camera not looking good.

Species: Arctic or Polar Fox (Poolvos)

Latin name: Vulpes Lagopus

Originates from the Northern Hemisphere.

Current status: Least Concern

 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.

Nice one! :)

Although I wonder about the colour. I've read arctic foxes either have white or blue winter fur. This one looks like a mix of both. :)

Thanks :D

I didn't know that :O
That's pretty amazing; this family of Arctic Foxes has always had this sort of mix winter coat, not entirely grey, but not exactly white either.
There are/ were two others; one's white, in winter and summer, and the other one is a winter mix, though more so white, and in summer just sort of spotted :aww:

Well, it's a matter of zooming in, but they tend to get real close to the fencing as soon as they hear someone approach

very nice...I followed tracks of one of these foxes today out onto the arctic ice, but finally gave up.

They can be pretty fast. Cool that you were actually on the arctic ice, and found tracks!

it looks like there are several roam into town at night and off by day, but I have hopes of catching up with them...and the polar bears which will soon be coming around.

That's so cool! You're lucky to live in an area where you see animals living in the wild.
