This is something you don’t see every day! A red fox dives head first into the snow at Kanuti National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. This photo captures the last half of the fox’s hunt for its prey. This fox launched his attack about 10 feet from the prey. By leaping, the fox avoids the noise of running at the target, which would alert his prey to danger.
