Caption

Blue fox. The blue fox (Alopex lagopus) is a colour variation of the white Arctic fox. Its coat is pale grey in the winter and thinner & darker in the summer. The blue fox is more commonly found in marine areas, where its colouration provides better camouflage. Arctic foxes have small ears and a short nose, which prevent excess heat loss in freezing conditions. It is an opportunistic animal, feeding on anything it can find, including rodents, carrion, berries and refuse. It makes dens and breeds in snow-free areas in summer, and may travel hundreds of kilometres to reach its winter hunting grounds. Photographed on the Svalbard archipelago, Norway.
