(Vulpes corsac, Liška korsak) from ZOO Ohrada, Hluboká nad Vltavou, Czech republic
I am SO happy that we have those awesome cat-like foxes in the Czech republic now!
they moved to brand new compex called "Closer encounters" in tiny ZOO Ohrada. Those foxes are so awesome and not shy at all!
also they are very photogenic
