More arctic fox photos

« 1 of 2 »
Kjartan Sigurdsson, a photographer and tourist guide, sent us photos of arctic fox pups at a den in the highlands of Iceland. 
The pups are all of the white color morph, indicating that the parents were probably also white (but we can never be sure since the white is recessive and the blue can carry white genes).
It is amazing how tame these pups were, and people were approaching them quite close to the den for photographing. There were no news of the parents but most likely the mother was not far away, watching and waiting for the people to leave so she could nurse the pups. More photos can be seen here on our web gallery, just click on "Photos" here on the left.
