Red Fox in Black Silvertip Morph
Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes), but this one is the “silver tipped” variety that was actively bred for its fur because of its use in women’s clothing. This guy ran along the road by our van for a while. At one point, he found a squirrel to play with and tossed it around, before leaving it. Fun for the fox, at least. The photo is from June 8, 2018 around 2:44 am. It was on the mid Dalton Highway, Alaska, between the Yukon and Coldfoot, if I remember correctly.
