Thank you so much for posting that! I've been trying to collect information on Arctic Fox "morphs" and many of these pictures I haven't found yet!

I did, however, find a picture of a spotted Arctic Fox in a zoo. I don't know if it was just a once in a life-time thing or not, but it looked almost like a dalmatian.

As for that picture of the HUGE arctic fox, that is kind of scary! I've never seen anything quite like that!

Elina's Slush did that spotting. It's just an odd period in the shedding that causes the spots temporarily in some of them.

Yeah that Saga morph looks pretty bad but they are super valuable to fur farms and expensive since they produce so much more skin/fur. He sure looks FAT to me too but it's said they all look that way so maybe fat is part of the morph along with the extra skin. It's like a fat shar pei fox.

The brown is my favorite too but sadly not in the pet trade, they probably don't even have them at fur farms, they are gorgeous though.
