Blue eye by woxys Blue eye by woxys
Adorable face of polar / arctic fox (alopex lagopus, liska polarni, pesec) from ZOO Brno, Czech republic :aww: yes, she really had blue eye. It is called heterochromia.

____________


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

I do not think that she is poor :) she has been always active and very dominant - there is no reason to feel sad for her :)

I heard fox and other canines have blues eyes when young and change color when getting older.

Páni, to je zajimavé. To je jenom vada zabarvení, nebo na to oko ani nevidí?

Jinak krásná fotka samozřejmě. :)

O: She's so sweet! Her eyes are beautiful!

I have grey eyes xD I used to think they were blue but no one agrees because they can't see any colour *shrugs*

And whats with the < W > Is it because her vision isn't too good?

In english Zoo's we're allowed to pet them if they've had all their Jabs/shots/injection things
