Arctic fox: mother love? Heh? by woxys Arctic fox: mother love? Heh? by woxys
Polar / arctic fox (alopex lagopus, liska polarni, pesec) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :aww: mother is giving a lesson to her baby, a cub, who was following her all the time :D the pup was making her crazy, so she decided to teach the kit good manners :D

____________


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

What a cute baby. If the kit was following me around, I'd be too mesmerized by cute to bear it. I suppose the fox mama is better at parenting than I'll ever be, haha.

I am very happy you like it - pose of the baby was then very different, as both parents forced the baby to lie and they were bitting it XD

tohle lišče bylo děsně odrzlé XD ono si usmyslelo, že nejen že bude za tou mámou pořád utíkat, ale že jí půjde pod břichem a mezi nohama XD takže liška šla a lišče se pokoušelo jít stejně rychle pod jejím bříškem, až o něj mamka zakopávala XD nakonec se vytočila, shodila ho na zem a začala ho takhle týrat XD

it did not! XD not a bit XD she punished it a lot - but it immedietely was following her again XD so she again stopped, punishing it again. The cub was yelling and also its father came to punish it... but yeah, when parents went away, the pup was running right after their tails XD
