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.
