Zoo Duisberg

Four Servings of Arctic Fox Cub

Last Friday, lensmen A.J. Haverkamp shot some great images of Zoo Duisburg's baby Arctic foxes. These canids are specially adapted for life in the frigid arctic with thick fur, a compact form, and a special circulation system in their paws. They also have keen hearing, which allows them to precisely locate prey beneath a layer of snow pack. They hunt by diving down beneath the snow and often emerge victorious!
