Red Fox - Vulpes Vulpes

The Red Fox (Vulpes Vulpes) is native to the province and is found throughout Newfoundland in a wide variety of habitats,and often seen in areas frequented by humans. They resemble a small slender dog and range in size from 3.6 to 6.8 kg. Newfoundland's Red Fox comes in a range of colours- red, black, silver, yellowish, and a mixture of colours called a patch phase. This little fellow was photographed some years ago on Buchan's Plateau .

What a beautiful little animal. He seems to have his eyes fixed on something -- lunch, perhaps.
