Appreciating the subtle and not so subtle physical differences between individuals or subspecies of animals. I'm not an expert, just a person who likes to troll through the internet to find interesting looking animals. Feel free to point out any mistakes. I am not accepting requests at the moment. I do not claim to own any pictures, and will try to link back to the source.

Arctic Fox Morphs (Vulpes lagopus)

  1. A very dark grey brown individual with subtle rusty areas in a summer coat.
  2. This picture seems edited, but another shot of the same fox shows that it’s solid mahogany coat (not counting the strands of leftover winter coat) really is that briliant!
  3. Not only does this fox have a unique dark grizzled appearance, pink nose, white blaze and socks, it also has has a piercing blue eye.
  4. Light grey, this individual’s colors may be less intense then #3, but it’s no less beautiful. A thick white blaze starting from it’s muzzle to the back of the head. The forelimbs, chest, and most of it’s tail is dipped in white.
  5. Another pied fox, but in a winter coat. Only faint traces of it’s blaze stand out against remaining dark guard hair lightly peeking through it’s light coat.
  6. Perhaps more “traditionally” leucistic, you wouldn’t notice this winter coated white was any different then most until you see it’s pale blue eyes and pink nose.
  7. This odd eyed cub might be related to #3. With a blue eye, soft grey fur, thick blaze, and white feet, the black freckled pink nose is just icing on the so-damned-cute cake.
  8. This odd eyed white mother (who is either gaining or losing her white) has a little of both white and blue cubs, with one blue cub whose tail is lighter in color.
  9. A dark brown cub with a stunning diluted blue sibling, with a ruddy-grey nose.

mod!edit: I wanted to try to avoid the more “loved” wild canines, because their popularity usually means that odd colored individuals are not “new” to most people. Broke my own rule, because I figured that more people would enjoy seeing these, since I haven’t seen their less common colors around everywhere as with red foxes and wolves, surprisingly. *hesitantly pets fox *
