Rusty, Cross Fox, captive animal

Rusty, Cross Fox, captive animal.
 
One would think with a name like “cross” that the fox is a result of cross breeding maybe a red fox with a silver fox, but in reality it is a red fox with partial melanism. Simply put it has a gene that gives it dark areas, and depending how much melanism is present the fox can have small patches all the way to completely black with some silver and white. Any way you look at it, they are beautiful! This is Rusty at Triple D Wildlife and he was not only beautiful, but very entertaining. He loved perching on rocks and logs, which for photographers was perfect. I can’t repeat enough how beautiful and how well cared for the wildlife was at Triple D Wildlife and we look forward to working with them next August.
