Snow Fox


Snow Fox
Originally uploaded by sbisson.
A 'silver phase' red fox wandering off into the snow, near Paradise on Mount Rainier.

The name refere to the charcoal coloring of its fur. The gray and black fur mixed with the redder fur is normal for the red fox population on the mountain, and the colouration doesn't change from season to season.

There's a larger (but less atmospheric) picture of the fox here.

More details from some 1927 nature notes...

One for tanais and megadog I think...
