Alaskan Red Fox

Vulpes v. alascensis

Description:

Spring coat. Multi-colored. Blended well with environment.

Habitat:

Alder brush, wetlands and coast line.

Notes:

I saw this fox on a ride this evening hoping to find some wildlife. What I got was a nature in action as this fox stalked and hunted a Norway Rat (Rattus norvegicus) for dinner. About 15 minutes later I spotted another animal, much larger than this fox. Check out my other spotting for the same date as this one.
